Good quiz. Problem with question 1, green is in both flags too - question is still valid just maybe needs rephrasing

The question wasnt about the colour of the flags, that was just a clue, the question was what colour is most sacred.
#3 Richie 2012-04-13 00:50
White is also in both flags smarty-pants.
Ally is right, you couldn't answer white or green as they are not the most sacred colours of Hinduism.
