A Brief History of Flags
Flags were first used as an aid in the co-ordination of troops on the battlefield but they have since become useful for signalling or as a visual method of identification.
Practically all countries have national flags made up of colours that are representative or symbolic to their country, these flags are patriotic symbols that are looked upon with great pride by the countries inhabitants.
Nowadays flags are widely used for messaging and in the advertising industry, they are also greatly used for decorative purposes during many social and sporting events.
In 1957 the term vexillology was coined to describe the study of the history and usage of flags, whilst a person who studies flags or has an interest in them is referred to as a Vexillologist.
A flag designer is known as a Vexillographer and someone who likes flags is called a Vexillophile.
