I have assigned 198 countries a number. The countries I've chosen are the 193 members of the UN plus those recognised by at least 20 UN members. Each week I will pick a country using a random number generator and we will discuss that country.

Myanmar's flag is basically a Lithuanian flag with a white star. No creativity at all..

Wow the Libyan flag is the most creative flag of all time. The utility of the flag is so great that it actually can serve a function on green screens.

Australia / New Zealand I can totally understand. Poland / Indonesia however is a strange case. I wonder if it's just random, or there is actually a meaning! :D

The Libyan flag is not the green one any more. It was changed back in 2011.

Well, it's actually one of the big grounds behind the flag debate. There have been some embarrassing confusions at high levels about which flag was which.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Flag_of_Poland#Related_and_similar_flags

Also, the Slovakian flag used to be precisely the same as Russian. These are supposedly panslavic colours (whatever that means).

Modern Russian flag (1993-), Slovakian Flag 1938-1945, Slovenian Flag 1848


Modern Slovakian flag (1992-)


Modern Slovenian flag (1991-)

Slovenia is always under looked. 350,000 people passed the border, and only 12 signed to stay in Slovenia (from the South)

So does anyone have anything to say to say about Myanmar other it's flag looks similar to Lithuania's flag or that it has (Burma) under it on Apple maps? How about Aung San Suu Kyi, The Bridge on the River Kwai or even burmese cats?

Napyidaw I think is the most recently built capital city in the world. I'm probably wrong though.

Myanmar is the only country that regularly officially uses furlongs (America and Liberia even do not). You'll see it on road signs.
