Synopsis

Flags of the World by Sylvie Bednar

This title contains all the world's flags in an attractive, informative package. Waving in the wind, a flag may not seem like a code. But hidden in the stripes, stars, suns, moons and colours of the world's flags are the keys to understanding different countries' shared histories and cherished ideals. Flags do much more than identify countries and groups of people. In every colour, pattern and design, the citizens and governments of countries announce their allegiances and herald their history. If you know what to look for, a flag can reveal major insights into another country's history and culture. In this complete compendium of the world's flags, each nation's flag is paired with facts and occasional tidbits of history. These flags provide a window into the histories, values and cultures of countries around the world.

About the Author

Sylvie Bednar is a fashion designer who has written about her voyages through Australia, Iceland and Mexico. Fascinated by the multicoloured beauty of flags, she started researching their meanings and developed a deep admiration for their symbolic power.
