This volume is actually just a combination of two previously published volumes by two different authors--one on heraldry, obviously, the other on vexillology (world flags). The information in the two separate books is very useful, however, and they are both excellent resources. Owning the combined volume has one particular advantage--when it was published, it was updated to reflect the latest world flags. Considering how often the geopolitical scene shifts these days, though, it may already no longer be accurate at the time of writing this review. ( )
