We post these different flags of each of the countries of the United Nations, and States of the USA as our owner's way of encouraging world peace. By understanding each country and other states a little bit more, we help to humanize the globe. I trust you will enjoy seeing these colorful standards, icons of other lands, and that it will cause you to pause and think a little more globally. In addition to our usual alphabetical order, we also accept special requests.
