Hello ,guys

If I want to know which country's flag has the colors green, red and white, could I ask it the following way?

"The colors/colours of which country's flag are red, green and white?"

Would it be incorrect or odd?

Thank you

    It sounds fine to me.

    But I suspect there are several countries* whose flags comprise green, red and white, so you might want to ask " . . . of which countries' flags . . . ".

    *I admit I haven't checked this.

    Sounds odd.
    Which country's flag contains (the colours) red green and white?

    I don't like starting a question in an affirmative pattern unless it's unavoidable and I am short of better options.

    I found it! One of you ratted on the rest. Consider yourselves banned - or at least to have had your knuckles gently rapped.
