This is the seventieth puzzle you'll encounter in Professor Layton and the Azran Legacy. To access this puzzle, you must talk to Ruby. In order to solve this puzzle, you must figure out how many squares are shown on the flag.


[edit] Hints

Hint One
    Before you get carried away, remember that a square is only a square if it is closed off on all four sides.

    Bear this in mind while you count all the small squares, and you should get a total of 17. This isn't the answer, though.

    Don't just focus on the individual squares. You need to look much deeper than that.

Hint Two
    Have you noticed that you can combine squares to create larger squares?

    For example, you can create one of these right in the middle of the flag, made up of four yellow squares, four green squares and one white square in the centre.

Hint Three
    You've found the central square made up of four green squares, four yellow squares and one white square, have you? If you look again, you'll see this large square actually contains four other, smaller squares, each one containing one white square, one yellow square, and two green squares.

Super Hint
    Add the five larger squares at the centre of the flag to the 17 individual squares you've already counted, and you'll have a total of 22. But is this really the right answer?

    Two of the knights on the top screen appear to be looking at the flag from a different perspective to the other knight - and to you. Remember - the design is the same on both sides, so you need to double that total of 22 to get the real answer!

[edit] When Failed

Too bad.

Counting alone won't do the trick here.

[edit] When Completed

Chivalry isn't dead!

The same design is shown on both the front and the back of the flag, so the answer is 44, not 22!

Knights need brains as well as brawn, you know!

[edit] Solution

There are 44 squares on the flag.

[edit] Progress

2385 Picarats and 182 Hint Coins.
