I'm not sure that they can! Many will know the two flags go with the two countries, and here they can easily type in the second box if the first doesn't match. It may become moot, because by 2017 NZ will have completed its referendum on whether to change its flag.

Silly me, here I was thinking that people would be able to identify very distinctive flags, such as Mexico, Cyprus, South Africa, but it appears people just start typing like crazy and start with the countries they know.

I got all of them apart from Netherlands because a lot of people get mixed up with the flags of Russia and Netherlands. People also can't distinguish between Holland and the Netherlands :/
