Flags of the World

In: Interactive Maps Reference

2 Feb 2011

Roll over any nation on this map of the world to see that country’s flag, as well as an explanation of the symbolism of its design.  For example, the colors in Egypt’s flag represent oppression (black), overcome through bloody struggle (red), to be replaced by a bright future (white) – a timeless design, apparently. Thanks to Jack Lucky for the link!
