Spanish regional geography is not everyone’s area of expertise, as Miley Cyrus proved during a recent concert when she waved the wrong flag.

The Bangerz singer was playing in Barcelona, the capital of independence-seeking Catalonia, when she flew the flag of a different would-be independent nation – the Basque Country.

The red, green and white ikurriña flag is the symbol of the Basque Country and is seldom seen in Barcelona – until Cyrus arrived.

She, thus far, hasn’t appeared to have noticed the error and her most recent tweet urges her fans to nominate her for a VMA – the awards ceremony which infamously saw her gyrate against Robin Thicke last year.

During her Spanish stay, she also attracted controversy for taking her 14-year-old sister, Noah, on a night out round the city, and for sharing a topless picture of herself on Instagram, managing to swerve its strict nudity rules by holding her mobile phone in front of her chest.
