Useful notes

Be aware of Austria 🇦🇹 and Latvia 🇱🇻, their flags are very similar. The key difference is the red on the Latvian flag is darker, and the white horizontal strip is narrower.

Similarly, the flags of Luxembourg 🇱🇺 and the Netherlands 🇳🇱 are very similar too. The most obvious difference here is that Luxembourg uses a noticeably brigter blue, as well as a slightly brighter red.

The flags of Poland 🇵🇱 and Monaco 🇲🇨 are virtually the same, but flipped vertically.

A helpful way to remember the flag of Ukraine 🇺🇦 is to visualise a field of wheat (yellow), under a blue sky.

The flags of Russia 🇷🇺, Slovakia 🇸🇰 and Slovenia 🇸🇮 are all horizontal tricolour flags, with bands of white, blue and red. Slovakia and Slovenia's flags each have a coat of arms on them. A a double white cross for Slovakia and a white Mount Triglav for Slovenia.

Romania 🇷🇴 and Moldova 🇲🇩 are neighbouring countries with a very close relationship. Their flags are very similar in that they are both vertical tricolours of blue, yellow and red, the only difference being the Moldovan flag features the coat of arms (an eagle holding a shield on which there is a picture of an aurochs, an extinct type of cattle).

Hungary 🇭🇺 and Bulgaria 🇧🇬 also have similar flags. You might find it helpful to think of the Italian flag , which also shares the same colours 🇮🇹. The word "Italy" is similar in terms of syllables (and ending in -y) to Hungary, and this can help you to remember that Hungary's flag has a white band in the middle just like Italy's does.
