Lipton Tea Flags, Arms & Maps Flags of the World 1966 Flags of the World 1966 60 - This is an interesting set which contains good colour pictures of national flags backed by facts about the country and the flag. For instance we are told that the flag for Ceylon (now known a Sri Lanka) was taken from the Sinhalese royal flag when the country became self-governing in 1946 but with two vertical stripes of green and saffron added in 1950 to better represent its diverse people. We are also told that the Dutch flag was originally orange white and blue in honour of the Prince of Orange, but the orange was later changed to red. There are interesting reminders of the age of the set and how quickly things change as Germany was still divided and we are shown the flag for West Germany, Aden was still a British Colony, Trinidad had only been independent for 4 years and Ghana, which became an independent republic in 1957, had altered its flag just two years before this set was issued. An album was also originally issued to accompany this set. Attractive and informative what more could you want. Cards size 68 x 36mm

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.
