“The Atlas of Flags by Federico Silvestri
Flags excite me. They are so full of meaning, and history. I bought this ‘for my kids’, but of course it’s really for me. This book doesn’t cover all the flags in the world because that would be impossible. It does go through the history of flags, and the terminology. Then it discusses important flags and flag families. Some flags are related to others because of how they were created, and/or of the color schemes they use.
If you enjoy history and flags, you will like this book. It’s aimed at the elementary school student, but any curious adult will get lots of knowledge out of it.
I appreciate that they authors also included Taiwan’s flag in the book, albeit on the China page.
I bought this book at the Big Bad Wolf Book Fair. That fair has been cancelled for the past 2 years because of the virus. I really, really hope it comes back so I can find other gems like this to fill my bookshelf.
