Features 268 flags, including the national flag of every country in the world,an atlas-style chapter for each continent exploring the history of significant flags, and themed sections that introduce the many different types of flags, plus great moments in flag history (flags at the poles and in space for example) and how we communicate using flags. There's even a design-your-own flag activity and a fabulous flag quiz at the back of the book to help you get creative and test your flag knowledge!
