Flags and Emblems of the World black back re-issue 1973
Brooke Bond Brooke Bond Tea Card Issues Flags and Emblems of the World black back re-issue 1973 Flags and Emblems of the World black back re-issue 1973 50 - These colourful cards illustrate the flags and symbols of many nations and include the flag of the United Nations and were originally issued in 1967 with blue text on the reverse. The text on the back tells us about the country and their emblem, so for instance, we learn that the chrysanthemum of sixteen petals was the symbol of the Imperial House of Japan, but has come to be regarded as a national emblem as well. Albums were originally available for both printings of this series. The really interesting thing, of course, is seeing how many countries within the set have changed their name or flag since this was produced. This is an educational and colourful set with cards size 68 x 36mm.
