    Well the 5 star C is on the flag... so yes that's a clue...

    Singapore. And the Uruguay one was easy.

    Only easy if you know what the flag of Uraguay looks like...

    Knew it was a ´stan, would have struggled which.
    So, without googling, what is the only nation whose flag is NOT rectangular?
    Fitter....healthier....more productive.....

    Nepal.

    Easy one.
    (though some incarnations of the Swiss flag are square).

    There's no fooling you, is there? Similarly, I reckon it's some shite-hole of a country, probably ravaged by war, disease, corruption or something equally cool.

    Saw that episode of Pointless, it was with celebs and someone thought the Swedish flag was Norwegian! I can understand some of the more obscure countries but I assumed anyone who went to school in Europe would know a Swedish flag. The level of ignorance in the sample 100 on that programme always amazes me, answers where you expect virtually 100% to know the answer and it ends up in the 60s or 70s.
