    I am quite facinated with world flags and find this book very interesting, not only about each countries flags but also enjoy reading facts from each country.

    Good up-to-date book. Includes flags not only of countries, but also some states, territories, disputed lands, etc.

    Bought this as when we watched the Commonwealth Games we realised most of the flags were unknown to us. Enjoyed looking them up and also the additional information given. Well worth the money.

    The book does what the title says, it details all of the worlds flags (as of 2009 - so includes ommisions like South Sudan) with good size pictures. Along side each picture a breif description of the flag is given along with its meaning and origin. Its not just countries, oversea terretories and regions/ states of countries are also listed.My only criticism is that notation like "this is an overseas British Terretory" is within the description and it would have been nice if that was clarified in the sub header beneath the offical title of the country.That said is a really good introductory book to the worlds flags including non-recognised states such as somaliland.

    Excellent book. Arrived in good condition and very quickly. I can thoroughly recommend this product and company.

    Bought this for an avid vexillologist who absolutely loved it.The one negative is it isn't over ally detailed. But it has quantity over quality.

    Fantastic book, much better than I expected. My son is mad about countries and flags and loves this book.
