Flying Colours: A Guide to Flags from Around the World

Publisher: Cicada Books

Review

Do you want to increase your flag knowledge? Do you have anything unanswered about the design of flags from around the world? What about all the tiniest countries of the world? This book has all those answers!

Fresson has created a truly compelling encyclopedia for flags. With each turn of the page, another flag is examined. You learn what each element of the flag means, how the flags that we know today were developed and what the colours represent, to mention just some of knowledge that you will discover from reading this book.

Flying Colours is far more than just a textbook about flags. With the use of a little team of multi-coloured flag experts called vexillologists, illustrating the elements of each flag alongside clearly presented information, Fresson’s book will no doubt become a staple on non-fiction bookshelves around the world. Complete with activities at the back of the book inviting readers to design their own flags, it offers a variety of opportunities and activities for teachers and parents alike – and even adults will learn so much.

You will be ready for a quiz on flags in no time at all!
