Although now outdated and contains a few errors here and there, this book is a must-have. I didn't expect to see the flags of various political divisions of countries, and there is extensive meaning behind the flags colors and designs. Th heraldry section of the book is quite in-depth and the illustrations are beautiful. I found the flag section more interesting, and I was unable to read all of the heraldry section, but it's still a great reference source.
