What mountainous Asian nation is the only country in the world with a flag that is not square or rectangular?
– North Korea
Answer: Nepal is the only nation in the world with a flag that is not a rectangle or square. The flag is a simplified combination of two single pennants. Its crimson red is the color of the rhododendron, the country’s national flower. The blue border is the color of peace. Until 1962, the flag’s emblems, the sun and the crescent moon, had human faces. They were removed to modernize the flag. The small country contains eight of the 10 highest peaks in the world, including Mount Everest and Kanchenjunga — the world’s tallest and third tallest respectively.
Nepal, officially the Federal Democratic Republic of Nepal, is a landlocked central Himalayan country in South Asia.
