You are given the next list of 48 flags.
- For each pair of flags that are side by side, you score 1 point per color they share as a frontier. For instance France and Finland score 1 point thanks to the blue.
We don't require the exact same blues, or same colors here. Common sense will be requested for you to tell this is approximately the same color. I won't accept white of France is same color as yellow of Vatican :)
Some other examples are Croatia and Denmark score 2 points, while Spain and Norway score 1.
Greece and Austria don't score points because they are not neighbors.
Your aim is to find an optimal 6x8 arrangement of those flags to maximize the score. The current score of the above image is 46+28=74 as shown below.
Please look at edit at the end of the puzzle :)
You must provide a representation of the arrangement like in the puzzle so we can see your solutions. Only solutions with a visual image should be ticked :)
You can use other images of the flags if you prefer as long as it's the same 48 flags. For instance, this Wikipedia page seems perfect.
When you are doubting whether two colors are the same, this means they are close enough and you can use them as the same. If you have no doubt, example red and blue totally different, then they are different!
EDIT thanks to a comment now deleted: The flag of North Macedonia is wrong in the picture so it should be a score of two and this is the flag you should use:
EDIT thanks to @oAlt, another good example is Greece and Hungary score 2 points because there are two different segments where white is shared.
