Maybe edit Australia's to remove the text name? Still not too hard to figure out.
Also not sure if this one intentionally doesn't have the yellow box like the other- I think it should.
Nice series! I like how you can generally figure out about half the ones that aren't immediately recognizable.

I mostly agree, but find it hard to figure out those not recognisable. Well some are easy, but for the Zebras I think I typed 10 other African countries. And well afterwards the colours on "L'union fait la force" seem obvious. Likewise the sun on the last one, but couldn't figure it out while doing the quiz. What's the hat on a stick about though?

I was wondering about the hat too. Seals are much easier to identify than flags. I'm color blind, but the shapes and figures give me something that I can recognize rather than just bands of colors that I have no idea what they are.

It's Phrygian cap, a symbol of freedom found on several Latin American coats of arms and also on the seal of US Senate. The relevant Wikipedia articles usually have an explanation of the symbolism :)

I know (of) the phrygian cap, but to me these look like a floppy pointy hat. like santa's. I didn't know on how many seals it appears, quite a few it turns out. Even on the US senate seal. It looks so weird and funny to me, because the way it is depicted it evokes the images of gnomes/goblins/leprechauns/santa to me... with their red pointy hats... look a cute gnome

what the smurfs have look more like a phrygian cap to me.

That one is A LOT tougher than the first one. Looking at the percentages I am amazed some are as high as they are. Either some very smart people on here, or a lot who cheat lol. Or I guess the people who take this are big fans of flags and coats of arms, and those who aren't leave the quiz well alone.

Compared to other geography related topics my knowledge of flags is just mediocre. I still managed to get all but 3 here without much effort. Some are quite easy as they give you not only parts of the acutal flags but a combination of flora/fauna AND colors of the flags.

Not when you consider that Britain was conquered by the Normans (who hailed from nowadays France).
For a long period, the English royalty spoke in French. That's the reason behind a lot of words with same meanings, but different origins (think of cow-beef, pig-pork and chicken-poultry)

The dutch (and belgian) motto are in french aswell. "Je maintiendrai" plus a wholllle bunch of african ones.

And quite a few of the countries is in latin. Would you find that weird too? (some unepected like seychelles, suriname and angola) (and canada, you would expect that to be english or french)

Most are french, 26 (mainly africa), latin 20, spanish, 18 ( south america) or arabic, 15. That covers about 90% of the countries that have a motto. (and portuguese 6). This is going by the countries of the world considered on this website, so no countries that are not sovereign, no former countries, or territories.

Ow and about 20 english, but not sure if these are all confirmed ( if it is official, and/or if not simply the english translation is given)
