• Re your suggested edit to my answer, which Wikipedia page is your source for this? The one I linked to shows this. (Happy to change my answer to match another source - I just couldn't find an exact match myself... Thanks.)

• I searched Ukraine on Wikipedia, then used an online color picker to find the colors from the flag image on the wiki page. Feb 21, 2023 at 5:31

The country is:

UKR[A]INE

The mention of a 'flag' in the title is doing double duty:

1. First, the times in brackets need to be interpreted in terms of hands on a clock and then converted via the flag-related code, semaphore. This way, 9:30 translates as 'B', 6:15 as 'F', and 6:00 as 'D'.

2. Then, with a little bit of tinkering - specifically, raising the digit immediately before a time by 1 (e.g. 6 up to 7) and lowering the digit immediately after a time by 1 (e.g. 8 down to 7) - you can produce strings of 6 characters that represent hex codes for colours. Specifically, #0057B7 (azure) and #FFD700 (gold). When the two rectangles are coloured accordingly, you produce a country flag - and that flag is the flag of UKRAINE.

• rot13 Envfvat ybjrevat orsber nsgre - Is it a usual transform, used by many puzzles? Or a unique one, more like “guess what random transform I made”? Asking just for learning. Feb 20, 2023 at 20:10
• @Pumbaa Actually it potentially appears to be a case of differing sources! The information on the Wiki page I linked to in my answer would require a kind of 'guess this transformation' strategy, but I was pretty confident by that point of what the answer was, and I kinda 'backfilled' the transformation in order to 'make it fit'. However, the OP made a comment in a suggested edit implying that they have another source which suggests the 6, 8 and other 8 should be left alone without any need for transformation at all. I don't yet know its origin though.
