Take no. 1 as an example. It is “The Principality of Sealand” which turns out to be a former WWII sea fort, latterly a pirate radio station, in the North Sea beyond UK jurisdiction over which a certain Mr Roy Bates declared it a ‘nation state’ and wrote its constitution. Some of the other micronations are even more quirky! Flags on fronts with descriptions on backs.Size 68 x 36mm.

Dobson Flags, Arms & Maps Flags Of The World Nos. 73-144 1978 Flags Of The World Nos. 73-144 1978 L72 - This set was produced in conjunction with a series Numbered 1 to 72 (see website for availability) and both backs have the words “collect all 144 cards in this fascinating Flags of the World Series”. We continue the theme with cards ranging from the cedar tree of Lebenon to the green, red, black and orange of Zambia and all countries in between. The brightly coloured set would make a good educational tool as the flags fill the whole card except for a white border and you may think you know your flags, but there are bound to be some to test your knowledge here. Doubtless some of these flags have changed since 1978 and this is certainly the case for Rhodesia which today has a new name and flag and also for Yugoslavia which no longer exists as an entity having split into different countries. The numbered backs contain the firm’s name and address and the name of the country. These are size 85 x 60mm.

Amaran Tea Flags, Arms & Maps Flags and Emblems 1964 Flags and Emblems 1964 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 1961 by Goodies Ltd

Dobson Flags, Arms & Maps Flags Of The World Nos. 1-72 1978 Flags Of The World Nos. 1-72 1978 L72 - This brightly coloured set would make a good educational tool as the flags fill the whole card except for a white border and you may think you know your flags, but there are bound to be some to test your knowledge here. We start with the blue, yellow and black of the Bahamas and end with the three elephants of Laos. Along the way there are some familiar ones such as Australia, Brazil, Canada, China, Eire, France and Israel, but obviously there have been some changes over the years and this set predates the unification of Germany so there are flags for East and West. Also we had never heard of the Aland Islands let alone seen their flag! The numbered backs contain the firm’s name and address and the name of the country. This set was produced in conjunction with another series Numbered 72 to 144 (see website for availability) and both backs have the words “collect all 144 cards in this fascinating Flags of the World Series”. These are size 85 x 60mm.
