The Asian flags are definitely a couple of my favourites. The pre-1885 dragon star flag of Vietnam is another pretty nice one.

Is the Dervish State flag supposed to make you feel as if you've been whirling when you look at it?

Also, with the way it's common convention to just accept modern day nation-state names for all previous countries in the same area that people conceptualize as being the same thing whether they are or not (like calling the Tang or Song dynasties "China", or the Old Kingdom of the Nile civilization "Egypt," and using the same placeholder names to refer to the modern states)... maybe you could accept Saudi Arabia or Arabia or just Saudi for Nejd and Hassa? It is also called the Third Saudi State, and was an Arabian monarchy ruled over by the House of Saud centered around Riyadh.

Also known as Jabal Shammar, it was an emirate ruled by the House of Rashid that existed between 1836 and 1921. It controlled quite a bit of Saudi territory at one point, however I believe around this year it was just controlling a bit in the north of what is now Saudi Arabia.

Afghanistan was a British protectorate at the time, gaining independence in 1919.

I would like it added to the caveat that we are talking independent countries here. These days Scotland is still a country, Wales is a country, they are just not independent. Likewise in 1910 there were many more areas that considered themselves a country, they just didn't have independence. (Ideally add it to the quiz name too, but I concede that makes it just too long, so caveat at least, please?)

No, they're just regions that are called countries. There's little doubt what a country usually means on such quizzes, apart from the level of recognition. Similarly in other languages, "pays" in French can mean many things, but "pays du monde" is clear.

You can also say you live in the country, meaning a rural area, but doesn't mean East Bumf County is a sovereign nation.
