Friday’s Flag Challenge

I’ve been thinking about something fun to do on Fridays to get the creative juices flowing. I’ve come up with an idea that might fit the bill.

I decided to hold a small contest involving flags by using the collage feature in Picasa. I created a pile of flag pictures and your challenge is to identify all the flags.

Since this is the first one, I wanted it hard, but doable. This first picture contains 16 flags, and your job is to identify them by state (I’ll give you the American flag on this one). I have included the full size image for this game, so click on the thumbnail and start making your list.

I’ll post the answers on Monday, giving you plenty of time to explore. You can look at pictures of the flags on the Product Page  for help.

So until Monday … GO!


Here is your first challenge. 16 flags! Have fun!
