Sorry for that, don't know how I missed it. I've updated the final clue of that.

Was typing luand then time was up. Would ve helped if I wasnt in the dark and could ve seen the kb (better). Now I kinda had the same speed as typing with one finger. And didnt get somalia, was happy I got the one before though. Cant remember what I tried just that it was on the west coast, Cape verde I believe, after trying togo, and or ghana and or cameroon. I knew there were some stars in that area, just all the exact colours

That's weird -
I got Somalia but "...that have white on them" says I didn't get it right at the end

Edit: Oh yeah, it's a yellow box quiz... never mind..

Angola has no green or white on its flag.

Correct, which is why it works for "has no green" and does not for "has white".

Another great quiz in a great series... one thought though, you have "is landlocked" as a clue in the "capitals or countries" section, which kind of gives it away as a country!

Nope! Capitals can be landlocked too. In particular their country can be landlocked as well.

So a city is landlocked if it's not on the ocean?

Yes, this is generally how I decided whether a capital was landlocked or not. Obviously it's hard to quantify that, which is why I rarely used the idea.

I love it when you randomly pick that country or capital that happens to take to you to the end. :-)

Eritrea is a country in Africa with E and population below 5 million but it didn't work for me in that place. Am I missing something?

Looks like I had the 3 and 5 in its population swapped in my spreadsheet! Fixed now. 3.5m not 5.3m!

I put in Freetown -- with an e, less than 5 million pop, and more than one word in its name! Free and town are two words, right? Then I realized what you meant. Great quiz.

Doesn't Eswatini fit the purple question?

It does the first 3, but it only has one word not two, so therefore fails at the 4th clue.

Stewart, you are being tricksey giving us a clue for a country that contains an e, when that country is usually written as an abbreviation without one. :) As always, great quiz.
