Where in the World (177)

The flag flying above the building was the biggest clue to the city. Both Skopje and Amsterdam where candidates but the “golden lion rampant with an axe on a red field” is the royal standard for the Royal Family of Norway. That narrows the possible cities down considerably. A educated guess or a little research would confirm that the flag is flying above the royal palace which is in the capital, Oslo.

Congratulations to Simon (@similtiades), Jackie (@JackiesJourneys) and Tim (@timofnewbury) who all identified the city correctly.

This week’s distorted photograph is of a building in a city of outstanding architecture though not necessarily as modern as this photograph would indicate. This one will probably present something of a challenge as a result of this dichotomy. Good luck
