Sure, you've mastered complicated Subway transfer at 59th street and you know the best Happy Hour specials from Midtown to the Bowery, but how well do you really know NYC? Here are three basic trivia questions about New York City. Any proud true resident should go three for three. After all, these are elements of the city that you likely see every day. Good luck!
1. The official New York City flagThe city flag is a vertical tricolor in blue, white, and orange and charged in the center bar with the Seal of New York City in blue. The tricolor design is derived from the flag of the Dutch Republic—the Prince's Flag—as used in 1625, when New Amsterdam was settled on the island of Manhattan. This design reflects the current design implemented in 1977.
(There are also flags for each of the five boroughs, but we've left them out of our examples just to make it easier)
