Depends what you mean by 'upside down'. The two ends both point upwards - I'd call that 'right way up'...

Probably just coincidence, but it does seem odd that you would reset this quiz on 9/11.

Hijacked or featured by the Quizmaster? Don't think that he'd just steal a quiz :P

No but he alters them sometimes. stealing would imply something different. I think hijacked is used here correctly, especially in the joking sence. QM came in and took the reigns (adjusted..) which is his right :)

(like when (test)driving in car and you steer to close passed something and your dad takes the wheel to adjust accordingly haha)

Sorry! I accidentally reported this comment when I meant to reply. :/

Anyway, what I wanted to say was you can click on the flags to zoom in. Moldova's is on the bottom right.

I was quite surprised to see that Moldova and Croatia have a crescent, since it is mostly used in majority muslim countries (same goes for Mongolia and Nepal). Can someone explain the symbolism behind that?
+1

The crescent is a traditional symbol of Moldova. The moon and crescent are the ancient arms of Croatia. Mongolia's sun and moon represent ancestors of the Moguls. Nepal's moon represents the royal house and its sun represents the Rana family (used to rule Nepal, now an upper class family.) Took this from a book I have, hope it clears things up for you :)
