Never realised how many flags contained grapes before. Looking at wine countries but Spain has hundreds of municipalities to go through  %%

I am still searching, but no Eureka moments so far.
PS:  A huge number of interesting flags in the latest BECC catalogue.

I always called it an inverted circumflex but it is apparently a "caron".

I'm going to have to think now, how to beat that evil flag. Or not!

Let's try another beverage, not too hard....

Dubonnet! ..... is that still around?
W3bby sounds more like a beer guy to me
so I'll look for an old world beer producer.

Hmmm Duff is Homer`s choice but is a Pilsner and "The Queen of Beers" is Warsteiner from another place all together...I need some liquid research on this matter %)

Colours are right for Duff beer (Homer`s favourite) but is a Pilsner whereas the "Queen of Beers" is from Warstein....hmmmm this demands more liquid research. Wonder if Ryanair has a cheapo flight this week to Germany.
