I created this mosaic, which references a country I like to visit in my spare time.
What country is that?

    $\begingroup$ They've been too very nice (and also very aesthetically pleasing) first puzzles! Oh and I wasn't suggesting a hint, bit simply something like a comment saying 'well done' or 'all correct so far' to let them know they're on the right track :) Definitely don't give any hints too quickly! $\endgroup$ Aug 20 '20 at 18:34
  • $\begingroup$ Thank you very much for all the compliments! Ah, now I see. Yes I will provide some comments! Thanks for the suggestion. $\endgroup$

    $\begingroup$ Huh, my avatar is using a very similarly looking code, although not related $\endgroup$ Aug 21 '20 at 11:01

If we

take all the red, then green, then blue triangles (treating white as "none" rather than "all"), we get the following images:
enter image description here enter image description here enter image description here
Each of these can be interpreted as ASCII in a different direction. For instance, the leftmost column in the red is 01010000, making a P.
enter image description here
The red, going downwards, spells Power. The green, going up-leftwards, reads Courage. And the blue, going up-rightwards, reads Wisdom. These are the three components of the Triforce from the Legend of Zelda series.

So the country you're visiting in your spare time is

Hyrule, the realm from the Legend of Zelda!

  • $\begingroup$ I'm not sure I see the ascii, even with your description. How do you read the words in the images? $\endgroup$ Aug 20 '20 at 17:35
