Yellow flags

There are 65 countries with yellow in their flag. I know, I counted them at I went to Wikipedia ( which has a page ostensibly listing all the colors that appear on flags and the flags which have each color. However, that page is woefully inadequate. For yellow, Wikipedia lists 21 flags, but one flag is of Niue which is more or less a commonwealth of New Zealand, one is the Soviet Union, which doesn’t exist anymore, and there is one listing for the Gay Pride flag. Last I checked, Gay Pride is not a country, although they do have a motto: “Allow me to push in your stool.”

In a related story, the 82nd Airborne says only 7 of its soldiers are performers in gay pornography. I figured, them being Army and all, the number would be a lot higher.
