Puzzle 1

Puzzle 1: Colored Flagpoles

Puzzle 2

Puzzle 2: Letter Patterns


The only instructions given to solve this is that the answer can be alpha-numeric text.


  • Puzzle 1:
    • 3 flagpoles seem to have top-balls (called a truck), while 3 don't
    • The colors in each flag I've found so far are (in hex and color-name, from top to bottom)
      • #808080: Gray
      • #7f00ff: Voilet
      • #c00000: Red
      • #3f8000: Avocado
      • #410080: Indigo
      • #ffffff: White
  • Puzzle 2:
    • Can't think of a lot of ideas here, though it feels like I've encountered patterns like these before (2x2 grid with stripes of different orientations), probably in a logic puzzle-book years ago
    • There seems to be a co-relation between letters and (1) the position (within the 2x2 grid), (2) orientation (vertical/diagonal/horizontal) and (3) number of stripes (3/4/5)

  • $\begingroup$ are the two puzzles completely independent? Or is the solution a combination of information from both diagrams? $\endgroup$ Jul 30 at 17:19
