10. Which flag is the TALLEST (by official ratio) of all the rest?

Answer: Nepal

Nepal: The flag of Nepal is unique in that it is the only non-quadrilateral national flag in the world. It consists of two red triangular fields stacked on top of each other, with a blue border around the flag. In the middle of the flag is a white emblem, the moon and sun, which represent the hope that the nation will last as long as they do. This is also the only flag whose base is shorter than its height.

Switzerland: The flag of Switzerland consists of a red field with a white cross in the center. The Swiss flag is one of only two square sovereign-state flags, the other being the flag of Vatican City. The white cross symbolizes Christianity and Switzerland's independence and neutrality. The inverse of this flag was chosen as the flag of the Red Cross.

Vatican City: The flag of Vatican City is normally a square flag consisting of two vertical bands of gold and white, with the Vatican coat of arms in the center. The coat of arms features the papal tiara above crossed keys, representing the authority of the Pope as head of the Catholic Church. However, the flag has no official dimensions. Thus, one can have it as long or wide as one wishes while still keeping with the rules of the flag.

Belgium: The flag of Belgium consists of three vertical bands of black, yellow, and red. The colours are derived from the Duchy of Brabant's coat of arms and were adopted in 1830 during the Belgian Revolution. Black represents the soil, yellow represents the wealth of the nation, and red represents the blood of the people which was shed for independence.

Niger: The flag of Niger consists of three horizontal bands of orange (top), white, and green, with an orange circle in the center. The orange circle is said to represent the sun or independence. The flag's design was adopted in 1959 and has remained unchanged since Niger gained independence from France.

As a ratio of height to base:
Nepal 50:41
Switzerland/Vatican City (unofficial) 1:1
Belgium 13:15
Niger 6:7
