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.

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.
