What's Raise the Flag About

Publisher Summary

Packed full of wow-inducing facts and trivia, this book offers much more than the average flag book. Featuring the history of flags, and many different types of flags, it’s both a comprehensive guide and an entertaining read. Over 200 flags are explored including the national flag of every country in the world. Find out how Lichtenstein and Haiti discovered they shared the exact same flag and which national flag was designed by a 15-year-old schoolgirl. Each continent has its own atlas-style chapter with the history of significant flags fully explored. Themed sections then introduce the many different types of flags, great moments in flag history (flags at the poles and in space for example) and how we communicate using flags. There’s also a design-your-own flag activity and a fabulous flag quiz at the back of the book.
