Just a quick note: I found craters Petzval and Mendel (there are possibly others) which are marked by an Austrian flag. Well, these people were actually Czech. Although, they lived in the Austrian Habsburg monarchy.

There are 18 features on the moon named after people from Finland, but since this map is limited to craters 75km in diameter and above, they don't show on this map.

Here's an earlier incomplete version of this map which shows a lot more flags, though this is also limited by a certain diameter.

Here's a full list of countries showing their number of features.
