Five Years Ago in the IAT/L&TM5K


January 6th was a Sunday in 2008, too.  Back then you couldn't pre-schedule posts, though, so the Monday Quiz actually came out whenever I was ready for bed on Sunday night.

The Monday Quiz IX: Flags of the World

Obsolete vestiges of medieval heraldry? Or cherished symbols of the human unity achieved in the modern nation state? You be the judge!

1. What South American County?



2. What Northern European Country?


3. What African Country? (That's a Maasai shield, if that helps.)




4. Can you ID either of these two flags?






5. Can you ID either of these two flags?




Submit your answers in the comments.

That one with the shield and the spears is Zamunda from "Coming to America."

Brasil, Finland?, Kenya, the bottom one's Panama, my brain is saying Mauritania although I have no idea if that's correct.

Brasil, Finland!, Kenya, Bangladesh and Panama, and Togo and one of the Central Asian countries, Turkmenistan I think. Yes. Turkmenistan. Although not wholy unlike Mauritania.
