If you are talking about in the world it would be:

Quito, Ecuador. It's closest to the equator (0º14'S / 78º30'W)

The capital city Quito, in Ecuador, is centered just 15 miles (25 km) south of the equator, and extends to within 6/10 of a mile (1 km) of the zero latitude line.

If you are talking about the United States it would be:

Honolulu, Hawaii (21.3069° N /157.8583° W)

Honolulu is 1,472.17 mi (2,369.23 km) north of the equator\

  • Kampala, Uganda (0º19'N / 32º35'E)
  • São Tomé (0º20'N / 6º44'E)
  • Libreville, Gabon (0º30'N / 9º25'E)

In South America: Quito, Ecuador. (Ecuador means equator.) In Africa: Uganda, Kenya, and Gabon have capitals near the equator.

The capital city Quito, in Ecuador, is centered just 15 miles (25 km) south of the equator, and extends to within 6/10 of a mile (1 km) of the zero latitude line.

The capital city Kampala, of Uganda is located about 15 miles (25 km) NORTH of the equator. Entebbe International Airport, on Lake Victoria, is within 2 miles (3.2 km) of zero latitude. The Ugandan town of Nebusanke, to the SW of Kampala, is directly on the equator.
