With stunning, full-color reproductions of each flag, this book offers a thorough and eminently readable account of how and why each flag was designed, what the various symbols and figures in the flags mean, and how each flag evolved. Throughout are interesting facts and sidebars that answer such questions as why Alaska is represented by the Big Dipper, what significance the diamond has in the flag of Arkansas, which state features the Union Jack on its flag, and what impact the Civil War had on designs of the state flags of the South.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
“[This book] packs a great deal of information into its 200 pages, and the color illustrations are well done. . . . [It] should prove useful to anyone teaching American histoy or to those interested in their own state’s history and symbols. Howe is an educator, and this is evident in the way the book presents its message.”—Military Collector & Historian “[B]eautifully put together. . . . [T]he illustrations are gorgeous, the formatting is as attractive as I’ve seen in recent years, and the stats . . . are accurate.”—Pine Bluff Commercial “How combines education with entertainment. Readers will not only look at their own state flag with renewed interest but those of the states they have visited.”—Enchantment, a monthly publication in Santa Fe, New Mexico “This book includes quick tidbits and facts that makes the history of the nation’s flags interesting. Your children can use this as a reference book for school projects, but we bet they will also be tempted just to flip through the book.”—Atlanta Parent “The concept is a good one. Nice work for the general reader.”—Statesman Journal
