Shown below are four country flags: Brazil, Australia, Philippines and Montenegro

There is a very small thing wrong with each of the flags. It is not the Flag dimensions or colors. Something very obvious.:) Can you point it out?

No partial answers please

Brazil

The E in the national motto has been made larger. Normally the E should be smaller than the other letters.

Australia

The smallest star has seven points when it should have five.

Philippines

The stars are all pointing in the same direction when they should all be pointing towards the central sun.

Montenegro

The tongues of the eagles are colored in (gold), when only the outline should be visible (the interior should thus be red like the background).

Brazil:

the image has the wrong resolution. Also, the word "E" is enlarged.

Australia:

the small star should have only 5 points

Philippines:

the small stars should have a point pointing at the nearest corner of the white triangle

Montenegro:

The crown is wrong shape.

Your version vs the original flag

enter image description here

On the Montenegro flag, there seem to be many differences (I don't know if this is due to different types of the same flag or not)

Here are the mistakes:

enter image description here

Brizal:

the “E” is larger enter image description here

Australia:

the smallest star should have five angelsenter image description here

Philippines:

the star should be pointing different directionsenter image description here

Montenegro:

the tongues should only be out lined in gold, and the crown should have different shape(as circled)enter image description here

All the other answers seem to be focusing on the flags in the pictures, themselves, but the question says to look for something obvious that is the same (I believe) throughout all four images.

If you place all images against a black background, you can see what's obviously wrong:

flags

They all have a white border that is not present in the actual countries' flags. Pretty sneaky considering they just look like margins when viewed on a white background, like a PSE question...unless they are meant to be margins and I've got this all wrong.

Brazil

Hard to tell due to the resolution but I think there is at least one four-pointed star (fourth from left) where the original Brazilian flag has all five-pointed stars.

Australia

is supposed to have one five-pointed star on it, while in the image above, all stars have seven points

Philippines

The three yellow-pointed stars are supposed to be rotated slightly with respect to their positions in the image above

Montenegro

The number of feathers extending out on either wing seems to be 11 in the picture above where it should be 13.

In the Australian flag:

One of the stars is actually a five-point star.

In the Brazilian flag:

The blue ellipse is oriented wrong

    $\begingroup$ Welcome to Puzzling! The question said "No partial answers please", and this is a partial answer as it doesn't address all of the flags. Therefore it is invalid. I encourage you to look around for some other puzzles, or make some of your own! $\endgroup$

    $\begingroup$ (from review) ISTM the problem was with having "4 separate puzzles" posted as a single question, rather than in this specific answer. $\endgroup$
