I thought I had a thread on games involving sequences but it seems to have been deleted. Here's another one.

Which flag comes third in this sequence?



And I can tell you (particularly those who have seen the last edition of "Only Connect") that the answer I'm looking for is NOT the Republic of Texas.

Italy? (World Cup hosts?)

Exactly. They were the hosts of the Football World Cup from 1982 to 1994.

When I saw the first two clues on last Monday's "Only Connect", how I wished I could be on the show. I would have buzzed after just those two clues and given "USA" as my answer - and I would have got it right! The fact that third in the sequence was the flag of Texas rather than the flag of Italy would have been totally irrelevant - I would have got the question right despite my wrong reasoning!
