    That's true, though the flag for 'Serbia and Montenego' remains the same. Similarly, Macedonia should technically be referred to as The Former Yugoslav Republic Of Macedonia. And let's not mention the Malvinas, or Tibet, or Taiwan...

    It is now called &quot;State Union of Serbia and Montenegro&quot;. It is a loose federation, though for how much long it remains to be seen. 😞

    &quot;Serbia and Montenegro is the name of the union of Serbia and Montenegro, two former Yugoslav republics joined together into a loose federation. It is located on the west-central Balkan Peninsula.
    Serbia and Montenegro came to an agreement only to cooperate in some political fields (e.g. a defence union). The states have their own economic policies and currencies. Serbia and Montenegro does not have a unified capital any more. Though most institutions are in Belgrade, some have been moved to Podgorica.
    The temporary constitution called Constitutional charter was adopted on February 4, 2003, in the Skupstina. Each of the two states may seek full independence via a referendum to be held in 2006.&quot;

    Thanks for the flags!

    I think in order to avoid confusion, a 'mouse over' displaying country names would be nice.

    A message from Nick Itpicker about the name of a country: it is not 'Netherlands', but 'The Netherlands', 'Netherlands, The' or 'Holland'. πŸ™„

    Anyway, if somebody would be so kind to change it.

    th
    No real difference, though 'The Netherlands' probably means 'The low lands', and 'Holland', 'Deep land'. Not sure about that. But my point is that the 'The' should be included, as that is one of the two official English names.
