Wow, thats different...the canadian within the maple leaf was obscure ! I'll give it 5 stars and a nomination, well done

May 29, 2020
I really should have lowered the maple leaf to make the city Winnipeg, in hindsight. At least if you miss it you'll still get the Canadian flag at the end--kind of.

yeah, wow this is hard even for someone who knows Canada fairly well! I love these quizzes, and would love to see ones for every country, or at least a few more. Great job!

I'm glad to hear you enjoyed it! It is surprisingly difficult to choose suitable countries. I am around 40-50% done the third entry, and I am beginning to think it will have to focus on European countries (most countries just don't have their cities in the right place, or perhaps their flag is too complex).

I was desperately trying different spellings of Fort McMurray before realising Saskatchewan wasn't Alberta, and ended up missing that, like almost everyone else. 5 stars and nominated :)

Thank you, I do what I can to feature the wonderful city of Thompson here on Jetpunk :) (if only Churchill was bigger, I think some people would actually recognise Churchill, MB)

I tried Churchill but thanks to your comment I got Thompson before I ran out of time. Unfortunately missed Stavanger and Galway. I'm loving this series, the visual appeal of the flags in the map with the subdivisions (which is rare) is so pleasuring and fascinating. Hope to see more (。•̀ᴗ-)✧

Level 66
Sep 13, 2020
Thanks for playing! Besides visual appeal, I believe subdivisions are necessary so quiz-takers can get an idea of where the colours trace over. I am midway through the third instalment, but it is going slow as I have less free time nowadays, and I'm getting to a point where I don't have pre-created subdivisions and must draw each one seperately before adding them to the greater map. Im also struggling to include non-European countries at this point. It is on the way, however!

In the map legend, the white and blue colours for Norway are switched.

Great quiz idea, mate, but is Liverpool not in the blue segment for the UK as opposed to the white? Just north of the Mersey from the Wirral
+1
Level 66
Aug 31, 2020
Yes however Greater Liverpool's borders extend over the River Mersey and onto the white section, creating a strange scenario. Glad you enjoyed the quiz mate.

Level 65
Aug 31, 2020
But it's not called Greater Liverpool. Liverpool is entirely north of the Mersey.

I've lived in Canada my whole life, and I just found out that we have a city called Thompson. I had to look it up just to figure out which province it was in. Manitoba, apparently. 13,678 people, which puts it well out of the top 100 for the country. This is probably the smallest community, both by numbers and by ranking, for any of these quizzes so far.
+1
Level 66
Sep 1, 2020
It's pretty big by Manitoba standards, but I hope I don't have to choose such a small city in future.
+2
Level 71
Oct 1, 2020
It's tiny and relatively new (barely 50 years old - started solely as a mining town), but plays a lot bigger, since it's the transportation, government, service, and goods hub for all of northern Manitoba - in particular the many Indigenous communities. A town of comparable size outside the north in Canada wouldn't have anywhere close to the same importance.
+1
Level 66
Oct 1, 2020
That's true, I was surprised when I first learned how big the city was, compared to how far north it's location is.

A quiz that warmed this Manitoban's heart. Winnipeg and Thompson named, while Calgary and Edmonton are out? That's the dream.

Yes! I'm from Southern Alberta and I hate to see Calgary and Edmonton get all the credit. Manitoba deserves more time in the spotlight.

Great quiz, enjoyed that!.. Perhaps Nottingham instead of Liverpool for UK's white portion. Liverpool is just in the blue, whilst it's the Wirral in white. But that's me nit picking. Well done!
+1
Level 66
Oct 1, 2020
Thank you! I am changing the white stripe to Nottingham. Liverpool is a bit of a stretch (although I believe my source exaggerates Liverpool's size so that it encompasses Wirral).
+2
Level 59
Oct 1, 2020
Enjoyable, but like others confused with location of Liverpool, would have been a bit more fair to represent the blue for Glasgow or Edinburgh from Scotland.

As it's the white which is currently Liverpool, I am planning on changing it to Nottingham. Thanks for the feedback.

These are great! I love how you just cut the borders instead of aligning each of them to correctly fit their subdivisions ie the Canadian maple leaf takes up parts of multiple provinces...I wonder how you're even able to do that!
+2
Level 66
Oct 1, 2020
Thank you! It's time consuming, but I trace the borders of each country, within the colour region. The paths for all the different subdivisions are just lines and have no fill, and they overlay on top of everything else. It's really hard to explain, however now that this quiz is featured anyone can download the map for themselves.
+2
Level 51
Oct 1, 2020
Yeah I know, but what I meant was finding the data - usually there's only data for certain regions!
+2
Level 66
Oct 1, 2020
My bad. I used citypopulation.de's city population figures for each country, and since there are subdivisions included here, it isn't hard to figure where cities are. The nice since about citypopulation is that they have their data plotted on a map, and that makes it much easier to see which city is biggest in any given area of the country.

I got everything besides the Red part of the flag of the UK and than, I ran out of time but, when I lost since I did not get the Red part of the UK and it replaced it with RED because I got it wrong, it looked like I go it right because it turned red again replaces well, RED

Yes, but the red of the Union Jack is deeper than the red used for incorrect answers.
