Quiz WriterCharlie

Charlie took to the written word like a fish takes to water. That is to say; they found themselves immersed in literature from before they were born. They've been known to tell their friends how they can still remember the passages their parents read to them when they were in utero - Emily Dickinson, Jane Austen, and a bit of Hunter S. Thompson thrown in to balance it out. Charlie keeps their feet wet, whether they're whipping up pithy one-liners to tease your brain or busy working on their second novel (the first one is available on Amazon under a pen name they refuse to disclose). You’re sure to get a kick out of giggle-worthy explanations and outrageous hints, and still come away feeling like you’ve just expanded your knowledge base.

Did you know?

Nepal's Flag is the only non-rectangular flag

What's funny is that even though Nepal's flag, which looks like two triangles is the only country flag in the world that isn't a rectangle, it is also the oldest official country flag. It has a blue frame that stands for harmony and peace and red, or crimson, that is its national color. The triangles are said to represent the Himalayan mountains buy some, but in actually, it is an old Hindu symbol.

Another misinterpretation is the Greek flag that is believed to represent the Mediterranean Sea and the phrase ‘Freedom or Death.' These are debated, but there is one thing for sure the cross represents Orthodox Christianity.

Many young people think that the Bhutan flag is the coolest because of its outstanding dragon. And well, even the dame of the country means 'dragon.' But it really represents wealth since dragons collect gold and jewels.

Mozambique has one of the most interesting flags even though not many know what it means. To be fair, it does have an Ak-47 plastered on the front. But the flag actually stands for agriculture, the abundance of minerals, and the fight for independence. Unlike most, it brings politics into the story by standing for socialism, education, and progress.

Flags are all so interesting, but not many people give any notice to anyone else's but their own. But when you really start looking at the flags of other countries, you learn a lot and see the beauty of each of them. Even if it's a different color, size, and shape (Nepal) as ours!
