Flying Colors: A Guide to Flags from Around the World

Author(s): Robert G. Fresson (Illustrator); Robin Jacobs


By exploring the designs of flags, we can learn all about the histories and aspirations of the countries they represent. Did you know that only the flag of Nepal has more than four sides? Or that the flag of Mozambique features a book, a hoe and an AK47? Robert Fresson's vintage-inflected illustrations shed fresh light on the wonders of vexillology.
