Guardian flag quiz, and some of my favourites


The Guardian have a quiz to test your international flag knowledge if you’re after something fun to try this weekend. I got full marks, even despite being thrown by all the incorrect aspect ratios in their lead image grrrr!

I’ve always loved reading about flags and their history. I’d always bring one back from countries we’d travelled to; at one point I had them pinned to my bedroom ceiling which was delightfully colourful.

It’s tough picking my absolute favourite, but I have a few candidates below. See if you can guess them before clicking through any of them! It’s interesting that all my favourites thus far are sub-national entities.

Flag of Norfolk Island Flag of Bavaria Flag of Maryland Flag of Miyagi Prefecture Flag of Wales Flag of the Jewish Autonomous Oblast
