Flags of the World Quiz #13 – Mexican state flags

Mexico flag

While the Mexican national flag with its red, white and green might be well-known, most travellers aren’t as familiar with the country’s state flags.

Mexico’s official name is the United Mexican States and includes 31 states (32 if you count the federal district that is home to Mexico City), but not all of them have an official flag. In fact, only seven do and there are two that specifically assert in their constitutions that they not have one.

How good are you at identifying Mexico’s flags? Take our quiz and find out:

The world’s longest skating rink is not in Ottawa

LAKE WINDERMERE WHITEWAY

At 7.8 kilometres in length, the world’s longest skating rink is popularly believed to be the Rideau Canal Skateway in Ottawa, but it lost that record in 2008 when an 8.54-km stretch of the Assiniboine and Red rivers in Winnipeg was cleared for skating.

Winnipeg didn’t hold that record very long as a skating trail on Lake Windermere Whiteway at Invermere, B.C., took the title in 2013 for a route that extended almost 30 km.

Despite those competitors, Rideau Canal Skateway has since rebranded itself as the world’s “largest” skating rink.
