Flag Of Bavaria
There are officially two FLAGS OF BAVARIA: the striped type, and the lozenge type, both of which are white and blue. Both flags are historically associated with the royal Bavarian Wittelsbach family , which ruled Bavaria
Bavaria
from 1180 to 1918. OVERVIEWBoth horizontal and vertical flags with stripes or white and blue lozenges without arms can be considered official for use as state and civil flag and as civil ensign (on lakes and rivers). The variants defaced with the arms are unofficial. However, the de facto civil flag used is in most cases a lozenge-style flag with the arms and a very popular symbol of regional pride used and displayed throughout the state. The exact shade of blue has never been set in stone, but most flags used by the public are approximately RGB 0-204-255; official use something closer to RGB 0-128-255. The lozenges are neither set in number, except there must be at least 21, and the top right (incomplete) lozenge must be white

Minister-President
A MINISTER-PRESIDENT or MINISTER PRESIDENT is the head of government in a number of European countries or subnational governments with a parliamentary or semi-presidential system of government where he or she presides over the council of ministers. It is an alternative term for prime minister , premier , chief minister , or first minister and very similar to the title of president of the council of ministers . The term _minister-president_ is rarely used in English; usually politicians holding titles that literally correspond to _minister-president_ are referred to in English as premiers or first ministers (typically at the subnational level) or prime ministers (typically at the national level). The term is a translation of the German term _ministerpräsident_, which means "president of the ministers". In German, the term is grammatically construed as a kind of president, so the plural form is formed by making the second part plural

Demonym
A DEMONYM (/ˈdɛmənɪm/ ; δῆμος _dẽmos_ "people, tribe", ὄνομα _ónoma_ "name") is a word that identifies residents or natives of a particular place, which is derived from the name of that particular place. It is a neologism (i.e., a recently minted term); previously _GENTILIC_ was recorded in English dictionaries, e.g., the _ Oxford English Dictionary _ and _Chambers Twentieth Century Dictionary_. Examples of demonyms include a _ Pakistani _ for a person from Pakistan , _Swahili _ for a person of the Swahili coast , the colloquial _Kiwi _ for a person from New Zealand , and a _Cochabambino_ for a person from the city of Cochabamba . Demonyms do not always clearly distinguish place of origin or ethnicity from place of residence or citizenship, and many demonyms overlap with the ethnonym for the ethnically dominant group of a region

Time Zone
A TIME ZONE is a region of the globe that observes a uniform standard time for legal, commercial, and social purposes. Timezones tend to follow the boundaries of countries and their subdivisions because it is convenient for areas in close commercial or other communication to keep the same time. Most of the time zones on land are offset from Coordinated Universal Time(UTC) by a whole number of hours ( UTC−12to UTC+14), but a few zones are offset by 30 or 45 minutes (for example Newfoundland Standard Timeis UTC−03:30, NepalStandard Timeis UTC+05:45, and Indian Standard Timeis UTC+05:30). Some higher latitude and temperate zone countries use daylight saving time for part of the year, typically by adjusting local clock time by an hour. Many land time zones are skewed toward the west of the corresponding nautical time zones . This also creates a permanent daylight saving time effect
