Oof, guessing will be tough, but I think I recognise a few

1 . This is not the flag of Scotland, but I guess it’s something Scottish. Reasoning is that a very similar flag is used for Scotland in EU4 :stuck_out_tongue:

3 . Reminds me of Heineken, or of Sapporo beer

6 . Somewhere in the Middle-East? Most definitely an islamic country, probably former Ottoman. Libya had a purely green flag, perhaps one of theirs?

7 . I’ve seen this one before, but can’t remember

10 . Something Christianity related?

11 . Ohhhh, so pretty!

14 . This looks like the Postal Service icon in Germany

15 . Florence! I just looked it up when searching for the New Orleans flags

16 . I remember this one from a previous Geoguesser challenge, it’s one of the US states bordering the four states point. Not Colorado, but one of the other three.

19 . I’ve seen this one before too, but no idea where. Something British?

Thank you very much for adding “Republic of Florence”.

I live in Florence. I don’t know much about history of my city and never heard that expression. We often refer to the “comune”. I don’t know how is it called in english. “Commune” perhaps? Age of communes is a well known historical period in Italy.
Anyway I googled it and learnt something about my home city. :grin:

According to wikipedia the flag was a white cross on red:

The red lily on white ground is today the flag for our municipality.

I’m surprised none of you got 7.! I thought that was one of the easiest.

About the flag of Florence I used, Wikipedia has this to say:

The flag of Florence, also known as the giglio (…) was the flag of the Republic of Florence between 1250 and 1532. The flag persisted as a symbol of the city following the dissolution of the Republic (…) [and] continues to enjoy usage throughout the city (…) the flag can be found on garbage bins, ambulances, and trolly poles

The only one I got was New Mexico because it’s the flag I always mention to people as an example of a US state which has an excellent flag, as opposed to the majority. I did know that the one right after was a prefecture of Japan, but not which one.
