    A hit with my son!

    I bought this for my 11-year old's birthday. He loves this book. It has great color illustrations and maps, is organized geographically, and has short, interesting histories for each country and flag. Now he constantly shares fun facts he learned while reading the book. A great way to teach geography and world history.

    The title says it all. Every independent nation's flag is included as well as sub-regions of many countries such as US states, Canadian provinces, etc.

    This book is the most up-to-date on national flags yet published. It includes Kosovo as well as recent changes to the Iraq and Lesotho flags. Each flag is beautifully illustrated and most entries include coats-of-arms as well. There is a write-up attached with each flag that gives meaningful information. Unfortunately as nations alter their flags or a new nation becomes independent, the book will start to be outdated. But, for now, this is THE BOOK to have for a complete listing of world flags. I highly recommend it.
