  • $\begingroup$ 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. $\endgroup$ Commented May 8, 2016 at 21:28

1 Answer 1


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. :) $\endgroup$
