Why do some flags appear in multiple challenges?
Some countries are considered to be part of more than one continent. For example, both Russia and Turkey span Europe and Asia. Flags for these countries are included in the challenges for both continents.
There are not 234 countries in the world, how come there are 234 flags?
Flagpole includes flags for some overseas territories as well as for countries. Those territories that have a separate entry in the CIA World Factbook and that have their own unique official flag are included.
How am I supposed to tell the difference between the flags of Indonesia and Monaco?
They have different width-to-height ratios; the Indonesian flag is longer.
What about Chad and Romania?
These flags are almost identical but the blue in the flag of Chad is slightly darker.
