I was going to query that; Georgia is surely in Europe? The Eurovision song contest thinks it is at least.

Eurovision also thinks that Australia is in Europe. Not really a valid source then.

Georgia is partially in Europe and partially in Asia, as a result different people will give different answers to what continent it 'belongs' to. Eurovision isn't relating to Europe btw, it relates to countries that are part of the European Broadcasting Union (which confusingly does not require the country to be in Europe). Australia however was a special exception, for Eurovision's 60th anniversary because Australia apparently loves the show they were invited as a special 'guest state'.

Does it not describe itself? In many countries the family name is last in the sequence. American (continental) and European names tend to have personal names then family name. In Asian countries it is often the other way round.

Clues don't have to be comprehensive definitions. They can be simply examples, it that's what the quizmaker fancies.

Except that the clue is incorrect and misleading by being specific in this way. If the clue asked for a word for "custom jewellery made by a jeweler" or "custom bicycle made by a handmade bicycle frame builder," according to your criteria that would be ok. But no, it would be just as misleading. Quizmaster, please correct this clue.

No, they are not close enough. Magenta and fuchsia are saturated pinks, maroon is a brownish red, and mauve is a light purple.

+1
level 60
Jan 31, 2019
I'm guessing you've never been there. The love for the color orange (oranje) has to do with their royals. You'd see streets filled with people in orange clothes on King's Day (Koningsdag). You may want to look up House of Orange-Nassau.
