About this deal

We use Google Analytics to see what pages are most visited, and where in the world visitors are visiting from. My son is not a child who wants to read books but when he gets interested I love it and I like when he wants to learn about other Countries too. I like the explanation, the illustrations and the maps, although I know where 98% of the nations are located. Discover the flags of the world with this complete guide published in association with the Flag Institute. The Turkish Republic of North Cyprus is the de jure civil administration of that part of the island and was granted a separate flag by the sponsoring Turkish Government.

DK's aim is to inform, enrich, and entertain readers of all ages, and everything DK publishes, whether print or digital, embodies the unique DK design approach. These cookies help provide information on metrics the number of visitors, bounce rate, traffic source, etc. Finding a fun way to learn facts like states and countries is important, because in the end, it is a lot of memorization.It is just the right size for him to hold and leaf through but it is an adult book and too complicated for him to read. The Complete Flags of the World is the essential guide to both identifying flags and understanding the complex history and symbolism behind the incredible variety of designs that have evolved over the years, from the ancient medieval cantons of Switzerland to the "Stars and Stripes" of the USA.

A fun read overall; but the way that information was presented was inconsistent throughout the book due to the publishers seemingly only wanting one page per national flag. It describes the symbolism of colors/pictures in the flag, and a brief recent history of the country and flag. The remarkable amount of information presented on the all-important functions of identification and signaling at sea makes an important contribution to the literature.Cannon begins by tracing the evolution of the standard "Stars and Stripes" and its growth over the first eight decades of independence. Our adult range spans travel, including the award-winning DK Eyewitness Travel Guides, history, science, nature, sport, gardening, cookery, and parenting. Detailed notes and annotation reveal the origins, design development, and significance of colours, symbols, crests, and coats of arms and the reasons for recent changes to the flags.
