Travel trivia: European flags

Posted on January 21st, 2011 by Laura Byrne Paquet in Travel Trivia

What country claims that its flag was inspired when King Eric the Holy saw a yellow cross against a blue sky as he landed in Finland during an 1157 crusade?

  • Poland
  • Sweden

Think you know the answer? Send it to me as a comment at the bottom of this post (one answer per contestant, please!). At the end of the week, I’ll draw one name from among all the people who answered correctly, and that person will receive this week’s prize: a $20 gift certificate fromĀ BnBFinder.com.

Come back to Facing the Street tomorrow for another travel trivia question and another chance to win the $20 gift certificate! And if you can’t wait until then for your trivia fix, check out my husband Paul’s trivia site, TriviaHallOfFame.com. (He provided this question, BTW.)
