Quiz Answer Key and Fun Facts
1. Israel

The State of Israel, approximately the size of New Jersey, is situated in western Asia. It declared independence in 1948. Israel borders Lebanon, Syria, Egypt, Jordan and Palestine. It has a coastline on both the Mediterranean and Red Seas. Israel is home to the Dead Sea, the lowest point of land in the world. It is claimed that Israel has more museums per capita than any other country, one of which is Yad Vashem - the World Holocaust Remembrance Centre.

The flag of Israel has a white background, with a blue hexagram, or six-pointed star, in its centre, and a blue line at the top and bottom. The star is made of two intersecting equilateral triangles - just their lines, not filled in. This star is known as the Star of David, and is an historically recognised symbol of the Jewish people.
2. Panama

A transcontinental country, the Republic of Panama is situated in the south of North America, and the north of South America. It borders Costa Rica to the north and Colombia (the country of which it used to be a part until 1903) to the south. The Panama Canal between the Pacific Ocean and the part of the Atlantic Ocean known as the Caribbean Sea is important for world trade. Panama is unique in that you can see the sun rise on the Pacific and set on the Atlantic. The famous Panama hat actually originated in Ecuador.

The flag of Panama is divided into quarters. Top left is a blue five-pointed star on a white background, top right is red, bottom left is blue, and bottom right is a red five-pointed star on white. The red and white quarters represent the two main parties, Liberal and Conservative, respectively. The white background to the stars represents peace. The red star represents authority of law, and the blue star represents purity and honesty governing civic life.

The world's second oldest freshwater lake, which also has the second biggest volume of water, Lake Tanganyika, is on Burundi's south-western border.

Burundi's flag has a white saltire, a cross that goes between the diagonally opposite corners. The top and bottom sections are red, and the left and right sections are green. In the centre is a white circle containing three red six-pointed stars. The white represents peace; green, the nation's hopes; and red, its suffering in the fight for independence. The stars represent the three main ethnic groups of the country, the Tutsi, Twa, and Hutu.

Its Médanos de Coro National Park is situated in the country's main desert area. Venezuela's economy is dominated by the oil industry.

On the flag of Venezuela, there are three bands in the national colours: yellow, representing the riches of the country, and the sun; blue - representing the sea; and red - representing the blood spilt in the fight to become independent from Spain. There are eight white five-pointed stars in an arch in the middle of the central blue band, representing the 8 provinces that were declared by national hero Simon Bolivar in the Third Republic of Venezuela in 1817.

The Aral Sea, to the north, formerly the fourth largest lake in the world, has largely disappeared due to over extraction of water. Uzbekistan is a major producer of cotton and carrots.

The flag of Uzbekistan has three bands: blue represents the sky, water and the Turkic people; white is the Uzbek symbol for peace and luck; and green represents nature, new life and harvest. Between these bands are smaller red bands representing the power of life. To the top left, in the blue band, is a crescent moon, representing the new nation, and also a traditional symbol of the Uzbek religion, Islam. Next to the moon are twelve five-pointed stars arranged like this:

one column one star high; one column two stars high; three columns three stars high,
