How does America compare to Australia?
It seems that Aussies know their geography (or at least their flags) a bit better than Americans, with just under a quarter (24.95%) of Australians correctly identifying the Netherland’s flag. That is not to say that Aussies shouldn’t hit the books, as almost half (47.90%) of people surveyed thought that the flag was French.
Scores were again higher in Australia than in America with 44.51% of people correctly identifying the Norwegian flag, but confusion still arose, with the same amount of people thinking that the flag belonged to another Nordic neighbour (Denmark, Sweden or Iceland).
Lastly, just over half of the people surveyed correctly identified the Czech Republic’s flag. However, over one fifth of participants indicated that they did not know the answer, the highest rate for any of the questions asked.
Embarrassingly, only 69.46% of Australians were able to identify the flag of their closest neighbour. Adding to the injury, over 15% of the people surveyed couldn’t tell the difference between their own country’s flag and New Zealand’s.
