Ah, you mean like the stripes on the German flag would normally be horizontal but in this quiz they are all vertical

Virtical stripes were left as-is and horizontal stripes were rotated so that the top colour is on the left hand side

Perhaps you're getting it mixed up with the US flag.

You're not entirely wrong... The French flag was completely white at one point

You're about 200 years too late. That's the flag of the Bourbon Restoration (1815–1830)

The white flag with three fleurs de lis is the old Bourbon royal flag.

The Andorran flag isn't a simple tricolour, which all of the above are. Otherwise you would need Serbia, Slovakia and Slovenia to be included as well.

Original quiz! The only thing is that Hungary's flag's colours are inverted compared to all the other flags (it's facing right instead of left)

I got 100% but it's still just irritating that flags normally oriented vertically are oriented by their colors horizontally on this quiz.

In my opinion, it would be more irritating if the vertical flags took up 3 rows.

Yeah that's what I was hoping wouldn't happen with flags like that. It would make a huge mess of things.

Yea especially since the time is rather tight, i think people just spam countries rather than actually looking at the colours one by one.

i did them in order and had 30 seconds left. I say it is tight, because I didnt need time to think, but if you do..

The quiz is about flags with three bands or stripes, not colors. Austria is in a similar situation, btw.
