A refreshing introduction to flags of the world and the stories they tell.

Do you know why the Union Jack is asymmetrical? Or what the meaning is behind the black stars on many African flags? Well maybe it’s time to find out!

This is a gorgeous, accessible atlas of flags around the world. It is packed with fascinating flag facts clearly arranged by Robin Jacobs and joyously presented by illustrator Ben Javens.

The flags are grouped by continent and then by theme, creating a coherent historical narrative that serves as a great launch point for discussions around identity, geography and nation building.
