Update: A lot of you guessed the answer correctly: Malaysia. It must have been the flags. The photo was taken during a farewell procession for Malaysia's outgoing King Sultan Mizan Zainal Abidin and Queen Nur Zahirah, at the Kuala Lumpur International Airport in Sepang, Malaysia, Dec. 12, 2011.
You might think we at The Washington Post are obsessed with exotic animals. Well, how can you not when the capital of a country clears its roads for an elephant procession?
Below, we have a photograph of an elephant during a farewell procession for a king in some corner of the world. The country appoints a new king every five years based on a rotation system that was put in place when it got independence from Britain in late 1950s. Can you tell us where this photo was taken?
