This not a blow-by blow account of every nation's flag but a easy intro into why some flags came to be. The US and Great Britain get their own chapters but the rest of the world's flags are lumped into basic geographic areas. There's even a chapter on non- national flags such as the "Jolly Roger" and the "Checkered Flag." A quick & light read.
