An excellent resource for students with fresh text and large clear illustrations of Australian, state and territory flags. There are clever explanations of the coats of arms and good histories of the states.

     
Samone Bos
 

Flags and Coats of Arms

Samone Bos

Macmillan Education Australia, South Yarra,Vic, 3141

[Note: this is a Juvenile Non-Fiction Book] CURRENTLY IN PRINT

Part of the series Symbols of Australia the book is expensive and the content is flawed. The text is simplistic and the flag drawings are clip art, with errors in the designs of the ACT, NSW, Qld, and WA, whilst those for the other states are poorly drawn.
