New Guinea is the island, containing both Indonesian Papua (or West Papua), AND Papua New Guinea. Papua New Guinea is the country.

Jerry's link no longer works, but (spoiler alert) they voted to keep the long-standing design.

The proposed flag looked like this, but, as Freestatebear says, it lost against the current design by 43% to 57% in the referendum. I voted for the new design.

The blue and black with the fern and Southern Cross would have been one of the most recognizable flags in the world. Instead? A navy blue flag. With the British flag in it. Two of the biggest let's-blend-in, unrecognized, no-identity choices in a flag. Oh yeah, and it's basically identical to Australia's as if there isn't already a lot of unintentional confusion between identities.

New Guinea is the island on which Papua New Guinea is located. It is shared with Indonesia. Not sure why this is an accepted answer in some quizzes...

It is a standard type-in though. It threw me off for a moment because I usually exploit type-ins to save time. I don't have a problem with not having it as a type-in, but continuity should be kept so no one misses answers because they thought they were wrong when it wasn't accepted.

The Island is called Papua by Indonesians, perhaps some people from PNG as well. When asking for the island, Papua should be accepted, but jetpunk only accepts New Guinea. However, now it's about the nation of Papua New Guinea, so of course the name of the island (Papua or New Guinea) is not enough.

Because the Brazilian flag has lots of stars, with the Southern Cross being only a small part of the detail. You have to actually study the flag to see it.

This - I can easily pick the Brazilian flag, but have never studied it close enough to notice the SC.

Could someone answer why the Southern Cross on the Brazilian flag seems to be flipped over, in comparison to the other four?
