A sign of unity throughout time, flags are way more than a piece of fabric with a design on it. They can reveal major insights into a group of people´s or a country´s history, culture, status, and values. In antiquity standards waved in the wind in warfare, today flags hold us spellbound waving high on the podium in sports events, such as the Olympics and the World Cup. The author, a geographer, has put together over 1,300 flags from all over the world and history, not falling short of informing and entertaining readers of all ages with descriptions of the different types of flags, their parts, patterns, and terminology as the most significant emblem in human history.
