Review from Amazon for the previous edition

An excellent up-to-date guide to the worlds national flags, 9 June, 2001

This is an excellent pocket guide to the national flags of every country in the world. It is sensibly organised so that you can see the similarities between various neighbouring countries. It also explains why each country's flag is designed the way it is as well as an small description of each nation. The only small problem is the speed in which it is updated. Some countries have changed their flags recently and others such as East Timor have become independent. But for a cheap quick reference this can't be beaten.
