You can't fly directly to Liechtenstein. You fly instead to Switzerland, and then drive or take the bus!
Liechtenstein is a German speaking country, bordered on the west and south by Switzerland and by Austria on the east and north. The population is under 40,000. The capital city is Vaduz.
Liechtenstein has a monarch, Prince Hans-Adam II of Liechtenstein.
The country is a tax haven. Its low corporation tax rates have attracted many international companies and made the country wealthy.
A landlocked country is one that has no ocean borders. A doubly-landlocked country is one that is surrounded entirely by other landlocked countries. There are only two double-landlocked countries in the world, and Liechtenstein is one of them! The other is Uzbekistan.

About the Liechtenstein flag
The Liechtenstein flag has two equal stripes, blue on the top and red below, and a yellow ducal crown in the top left corner. The crown was added to the flag after the country discovered, at the Summer Olympics in 1936, that Haiti's flag was identical!
