    You've mistaken the Bulgarian flag with the flag of Brunei. The Bulgarian flag is white,green,red horizontal bands. The white represents peace, green represents the fertility of the Bulgarian lands, and red stands for the courage of the people. Better fix it

    Greenland and Faroe Islands are missing. They have their own flag and government even though they belong to Denmark.

    There was so many different ways of describing the relationship between countries and dependants it was often difficult to sort out the true nature of the relationship. The CIA world fact book describes it like this "part of the Kingdom of Denmark; self-governing overseas administrative division of Denmark since 1979 " and the BBC lists them as territories so I went with that. I look at it again.

    Default Palestinian Flag

    None of the sources I used recognized Palestine as a soverien country yet they reffered to it as the Occupied Territories. Therefore, they had no flag and I used one that I thought would be stable even though the size was not ideal.

    There aren't a lot of Montenegro sources out yet. The sources I was using did not list them as a country yet and so they had no flag and I had to use what I could find.

    You can make it smaller by coding, e.g.:

    HTML Code:
    <img src="http://www.server.com/flag.jpg" width="120" height="75">

    Using html code to resize an image is a big no no. I think I'll just wait until the CIA or BBC put out a smaller version. I'll fix the other Bulgaria Link as well.

    Greenland and Faroe Islands turned out not to have very much information and were not considered nations by a lot of sites but I went ahead and added them anyway. I am still debating what to do with teritories and commonwealths etc. Google Earth does not always show the boundaries for them like Akrotiri.

    Thanks for finding that it was a coding error.

    Update I changed the Country flages into placemark icons and added the U.S. Department of State's Background notes for each country.
