The post you've been waiting for

Hawai'i. I certainly had no idea about this - the Union Jack completely confused me. Well done to applez, getawaywithitshsilver and cwgerard and a half mark to redfiona99 (though NB British Virgin Islands not in Pacific).
Liberia. Well done bopeepsheep, blue_condition, applez, rigel_kent, captainlucy, sammywol, shsilver and cwgerard. The independent countries are a bit easier!
Basque Country. Well done getawaywithit, jacobsmills, burkesworks, and redfiona99. This was one of the three that I knew also.
Saint-Pierre and Miquelon. That is bloody obscure. (For those of you who haven't heard of it, it's two French-owned islands off the coast of Canada.) Well done to bopeepsheep, blue_condition, and shsilver.
Seborga, even more obscure than Saint-Pierre and Miquelon, a small town in Italy which claims it was never properly incorporated into the Italian state and is seeking independence (though not very vigorously). Only shsilver got this.
Not Montenegro but Serbia. Well done, bopeepsheep, shsilver and cwgerard. Close but not quite there, jacobsmills, burkesworks and redfiona99. In the area, captainlucy.
The Former Soviet Socialist Republic of Moldavia. If I'd know the answer, I wouldn't have included this one, as it's not the current flag of Moldova (which looks like the flags of Romania, Andorra and Chad, but with a different symbol on top). Not surprised that cwgerard had to cheat (by his own admission) to get it.

getawaywithit points out, entirely accurately, that this is in fact the flag of Transdniestria.
Somaliland. Well done shsilver. For those of you who hadn't noticed, this is the northwestern part of Somalia which is tryoing to get its independence recognised.
Faroe Islands. Well done bopeepsheep, blue_condition, smhwpf, sammywol, and shsilver.
The self-proclaimed Turkish Republic of Northern Cyprus. Well done bopeepsheep, getawaywithit, applez, jacobsmills, burkesworks, captainlucy, and shsilver.


Well done, everyone; this was not easy!
