Carreras Flags, Arms & Maps Flags of All Nations (un-issued) c1960 Flags of All Nations (un-issued) c1960 60 - These interesting cards picture flags from round the world beginning with Afghanistan and ending with Yugoslavia, which of course no longer exists as a country. Name changes or new flags must be a problem for any card issue as circumstances can change over night a few other examples include Ceylon, Persia, Czechoslovakia and the Soviet Union. There are plenty of well-known examples includes such as Canada, Japan, Norway etc., but oddly the set does not include the Union Jack or flags for any of the United Kingdom countries. The best thing about this set is the wealth of information on the reverse which contains details of neighbouring countries, chief towns and cities, area included, estimate of population and main products or what it is best known for. This educational set was prepared around 1960 but was not actually issued and is size 66 x 35mm

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
