The Glamour Girls 11th Series (From the 1950s and 1960s) 2017
Players Flags, Arms & Maps Countries Arms and Flags 1905 (C.C.S reprint 2001) Countries Arms and Flags 1905 (C.C.S reprint 2001) 50 - This charming set is also a bit of a history lesson as it includes many changes. There are countries who no longer exist or who now have different names and flags. For instance we see the elephant flag of Siam (now Thailand), Prussia, Hesse, Bavaria, Saxony etc. are now part of Germany, also the German flag of white with a black cross and eagle is today black, red and gold, Persia is now Iran, China’s red flag with a dragon now has yellow stars, Argentina’s 1905 flag had dark blue and white lines (today light blue lines with yellow sun), the Irish flag was a Union Jack with a harp and Russia ad a blue saltire on a white background (which after the red flag of the Soviet Union era is now white, blue and red). We are also used to Corea being spelt with a K and would normally refer to Tunisia not Tunis, but some of the biggest changes are to former British colonies such as New South Wales which had its own flag in 1905, but is now part of Australia, India which is shown as a British flag with emblem (now orange, white & green flag with wheel) and Canada which in this set has a Union Jack with arms in the centre, but now of course features a red maple leaf. The numbered backs contain further information and the cards are size 68 x 36mm.
