That's 2 out of the 3.....and you've gotten the two most difficult ones :D

If you want to be full nerd the Vatican (square flag) is not directly a member of the UN but is a permanent observer state at the United Nations since 1964.

Nepal is also the only national flag which does not have 4 corners

Wow, i missed out on quite an easy one alright given the sport we do...
Buut i guess really the only answer is nepal since a square is a special case of the rectangle. Ill await ndobbs and his geometry to confirm that though.

I think every square is technically a type of rectangle but not every rectangle is a square........but that's delving pretty deep
