Aside from the Jalur Gemilang, you can probably recognise the flags of a few other different countries, but we’re certain that you won’t be able to beat this 2-year-old in the guessing game.

Meet Aavyn Eliseus Ng, who is unlike any other child out there and has an incredibly (and unbelievably) strong memory. Aavyn deserves all the applause for his ability to identify the flags of 130 different countries! In just 1 minute, the 2-year-old is able to name the flags of 40 different countries.

For his exceptional ability, Aavyn recently made it to The Malaysia Book of Records.

According to a report by China Press, Aavyn’s mother, Erica said that Aavyn took only 3 months to recognise the flags of 100 countries, and for Erica herself, it was her learning process too.

“I didn’t even recognise many of the flags, so I learnt a lot from Aavyn.”

Jalur Gemilang, the Malaysian flag was the 1st flag that Aavyn was exposed to, followed by the flag of India. Speaking to WORLD OF BUZZ, Erica said that she was shocked when Aavyn came to her with a mini flag and adorably said,

“Mommy, IndeeeAr! IndeeeAr!”

Erica remembered teaching him about the Malaysian flag but not the Indian flag until she found out that it was actually her maid who told Aavyn about the flag when she was playing with Aavyn. It was never Erica’s intention to teach Aavyn about more flags but it surprised her when she realised her son can remember more than that.

“Back then, I only wanted Aavyn and his twin sister to recognise the Malaysian flag, nothing more nothing less. It never crossed my mind that they can actually remember more!”

Erica also told WORLD OF BUZZ that Aavyn has yet to start reading, despite his impressive ability to recognise the flags of the world.

“He is very active and loves running around.”

After realising Aavyn’s ability, Erica decided to introduce more flags to him and it didn’t take the 2-year-old long to remember what he was taught. Aavyn was introduced to 2-3 flags per day, until he reached his current number – 130 flags.

Additionally, Aavyn did not only excel in remembering flags but also dance moves and nursery rhymes before he turned 2. To make things easier, Erica uses metaphors to describe the patterns and the symbols on the flags. For instance, here’s how Erica taught Aavyn about the flag of Brunei.

“There are 2 hands on Brunei flag. I would place my hands on both sides of my cheeks, comparing it to ‘cute’, and that’s how Aavyn remembered it.”

In terms of future plans for Erica’s kids, she said that she plans to enroll Aavyn and her twin sister in school next year when they turn 3. Despite Aavyn’s unique ability, Erica admitted that she doesn’t have any high expectations.

“As long as they grow up healthy and they’re able to do what they love, that’s more than enough.”

Congratulations Aavyn for achieving a huge success at such a young age!
