Flagtastic Flags

Illustrated by Rebecca Howard


Do you know what a vexillologist is? Or what the Vikings, Pirates or Romans used their flags for? Do you know what the flag for Japan looks like? Or who beat Captain Scott to put up a flag at the South Pole?

In this flagtastic collection of fun facts, images and information, nutty Mr Flap invites us to accompany him on a whirlwind tour of his beloved world of flags.

Children of all ages will enjoy learning about the flags of different nations, flags used by explorers, flags on the football pitch, the flags needed for semaphore - there are all kinds of flags and they are all fun to find out about...
