Flamingnet Student Book Reviewer  KMeng
Flags of the world are more than just colorful displays. They show pride for their nations and have history and backgrounds to them. Independence is shown through the flag as a symbol; the colors of many flags relate to their freedom and beliefs. Common traits are found in many flags because of similar histories of the countries. Why do the flags of the Northern European countries have crosses on them? Why are the flags of North and South Korea so different? By learning the backgrounds of the flags of the world, one will find that many of the countries' traits are displayed with pride.

Flags of the World is nicely bound and put together. The quality of the appearance of the book along with its illustrations and information make it wonderful. Each country, for the most part, has information accompanying its flag. Some of the flags are rather dull, but I learned a lot about world history by reading this book. I could connect some details of the history with classes in school, and it enhanced my studies. I would recommend this book to anyone interested in cultures, travel, or is taking any history class.
