Part two - The mystery flag - twisted


Based on these flags:

enter image description here

(Count the sun in the Argentina flag as yellow)

Which country does this flag belong to?

enter image description here

Please explain why

EDIT: I added a black background to clarify what is flag and what is background. Don't count the black as a colour when solving.

    $\begingroup$ The Argentinian flag has four colours, white, sky blue, and gold and brown in the sun. $\endgroup$ – Pete Kirkham May 4 '16 at 16:46

Answer :

AFG HANISTAN

Reasoning

The country names are split in two parts: the first part having the same number of letters as colors in the flag.
So:

A - White
G - Yellow
R - Blue
F - Red
P - Green.

The shown flag is White - Red - Yellow so AFG. Only country that starts with those letters is Afghanistan.

  • $\begingroup$ @SendersReagent - the point is that this would be the flag if you followed the rules about country names and colours $\endgroup$ – Tony Suffolk 66 May 9 '16 at 11:03
