All About Flags

  • A refreshingly engaging introduction to flags of the world and the stories they tell.

    Did you know that the flag of the USA was inspired by the flag of the East India company – a private shipping company that traded in the spoils of the British Empire? Can you tell the difference between the flag of Luxembourg and the flag of the Netherlands? Do you know what circles or the colour red are often used to

    The countries of the world chose national flags which, in simple designs and colours, captured the essence of their culture and history. These designs evoke a sense of pride and belonging and teach us about how those countries view themselves.
    With flags grouped together first by continent and then by theme, this illuminating book explains how countries relate to one another, and how their politics and histories are interconnected.

    This gorgeous, accessible atlas of flags around the world is packed with fascinating facts clearly arranged by Robin Jacobs (Earth Shattering Events) and engagingly presented by Ben Javens (Alex and Alex). A timely addition to the reference shelf of any politically curious 6–11-year-old.
