More than a dozen new country flags have been adopted since this book’s 2003 edition, including South Sudan, Iraq, Kosovo, Burma, Libya, Malawi, Afghanistan, Georgia, Congo-Kinshasa, Montenegro and Serbia. This authoritative and brightly illustrated guide has been fully revised and updated to reflect today’s world. Organized alphabetically by nation, concise text describes how the flag came into being and explains the symbolism of its elements, lending a fascinating perspective on the country.
Each country’s flag is shown in full color along with these quick-reference facts: Flag ratio, flag use, date of adoption, most recent amendment, geographical area, population, capital city, languages, religions, ethnic groups, national anthem title, and national motto. A sample stamp in color adds further insight. Also included are a brief history of flags, state flags of USA, provincial flags of Canada, flags of the UK, flags of international organizations, signal flags and ensigns and a world map.
