  • $\begingroup$ @manshu, unlike the previous question, more info is needed here, the hint may help $\endgroup$ – Beastly Gerbil May 8 '16 at 18:33
  • $\begingroup$ To be perfectly honest, I could answer that the flag was that of Germany because it was one of the German flag ideas post-WWII. $\endgroup$ – SMS von der Tann May 8 '16 at 21:28

These given four flags are of the countries Vietnam, Turkey, Yemen, Morocco respectively.
Now the capitals of these countries are Hanoi, Ankara, Sana, Rabat.

By the same logic as the linked question we can say

The capitals names are split in two parts: the first part having the same number of letters as colors in the flag.
A - Red
H - Yellow
R - Green
N - White
S - Black.
The flag shown is Red, Black, Yellow. So ASH. Only capital that starts with those letters is Ashgabat, which is the capital of Turkmenistan

Or maybe it's just a flag of Belgium with colors twisted. Who knows? ;-)

  • $\begingroup$ @SMSvonderTann True. But I guessed that Beastly Gerbil was expecting an answer in the terms of capital. :) $\endgroup$ – manshu May 8 '16 at 19:23
  • $\begingroup$ @manshu quite right, I was :P well done $\endgroup$ – Beastly Gerbil May 8 '16 at 20:35
  • $\begingroup$ @BeastlyGerbil I am still wondering about the clue in the question. What was it? $\endgroup$ – manshu May 9 '16 at 6:14

    $\begingroup$ @manshu, the clue was written in capitals. But tenuous $\endgroup$ – Beastly Gerbil May 9 '16 at 6:29
