Heaven forfend! How can you even BEGIN to compare Indonesia's flag to Poland's? Poland's obviously incorporates so much more visual interest, historical context, and artistic skill, while capturing the essence of all her people, their long political trials and humanitarian struggles, and their importance on the modern world stage. Seriously – Indonesia just looks like they slapped theirs together in like five minutes!

Probably it's counted under C, as it's often written as Côte d'Ivoire.

be as it may, the quiz is in English so I would think the English spelling/name would be the deciding factor. In English, it's not called the "Coast of Ivory", it's "Ivory Coast". That being said, I agree that it should not be on there.

I'm getting a little over this. The country, in English, is OFFICIALLY known as 'the Republic of Côte d'Ivoire'. Even in English, 'Ivory Coast' is only used by the elderly who know no better (probably still say Burma and Siam) and those who choose stubbornness over education.

Lots of countries have official names that they want other countries to use. For example, the UN refers to Bolivia as "The Plurinational State of Bolivia". Brunei is "Brunei Darussalam" and Laos is "Lao People’s Democratic Republic". It's honestly a bit silly. You really wouldn't like it if we consistently applied the official names. So instead we consistently apply the colloquial names.

I didn't change Swaziland right away. But in the end, Swaziland didn't have a lot of sticking power and most people were using Eswatini so I changed it. Not the case for Ivory Coast. In any case, these objections are a little annoying. It's impossible to create a consistent naming system that will satisfy everyone.

Really... it is côte d'ivoir in english, ivory coast is just the translation. You dont call costa rica rich coast do you..? It really should not be on this quiz. I get that you cant please everyone and someone is always gonna complain. But for that reason you might as wel do it the right way. (As for using the argument, people never use this name but they did with other countries.. i totally disagree, only on this site I ve seen some people prefering ivory coast so saying cote d'ivoire is not commonly in use is silly.

Fun fact: the Ivory Coast was so named because it was colonized entirely by Irish people, whose bright, opalesque skin so contrasted with those of the people in neighboring countries that the region came to be known as the Nid d'Irlandais or Plage Laiteuse, and then later Côte d'Ivoire.

True, but not in the Netherlands, where I live. Iraq and Ireland are written as 'Irak' and 'Ierland', so the sequence was Ierland-(...)-Irak-Iran-Israel.
