Cleary's Australia Flags, Arms & Maps Flags and Funnels of Australian Registered Shipping Companies 1st Series 2014 Flags and Funnels of Australian Registered Shipping Companies 1st Series 2014 50 - These coloured cards are reminiscent of Ogdens’ Flags and Funnels of Leading Steamship Lines 1906, but these feature the flags and funnels of Australian registered shipping companies. The numbered backs contain a wealth of information about the companies such as the fact that the O’May Brothers began with rowing passengers from Kangaroo Point to Derwent before getting their first steamer in 1870 or that the shallow draft ships of the North Coast Steamship Company, formed in 1891, proved invaluable in World War II, but three were lost in the conflict. Size 69 x 36mm.

Players Flags, Arms & Maps Countries Arms and Flags 1905 (CCS reprint 2001) Countries Arms and Flags 1905 (CCS 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.

Goodies Flags, Arms & Maps Flags and Emblems 1961 Flags and Emblems 1961 25 - As the title suggests this set contains flags and emblems, but there are some unusual inclusions and arrangements in this set. For instance the first flag is that of NATO, the North Atlantic Treaty Organisation, who colours are made up of the blue of the ocean and a compass rose in a white circle signifying unity and peace. Also included is the S.H.A.P.E flag, the initials standing for Supreme Headquarters Allied Powers in Europe, the Admiralty flag, the flag of Trinity House who are responsible for all lighthouses and the flag of the Cinque Ports which is flown by the Lord Warden who at the time this set was issued by Winston Churchill. Also curious is the way badges are grouped together on one card, for instance Gibraltar and Malta are both shown on the last card, but they have nothing in common except they are both in the Med and why does Nepal have its own card, but Nigeria and Sierra Leone share a card? Also why Bolivia or Western Samoa but no Australia, America or New Zealand? Despite these puzzles this is a good set containing colourful cards with plenty of facts on the reverse. Size 68 x 36mm. This set was also issued in 1964 by Amaran Tea
