Beautiful book, but I have seen a few errors so far. Flags which should have yellow sections are illustrated in orange for Guinea-Bissau and Barbados; One of the Micronesian flags - Yap - has the correct text but the wrong flag.

These, and potentially other errors should be corrected.

Majority looks like a good reference though.

The pages are small and I must ensure the right size of book, next time I order one. I found some of the explanations of e.g. African countries flags, to be lacking in detail. But it might apply to just that continent. I haven't read other sections extensively as yet. There are some great illustrations of the British Dependent territories, which I was not familiar with - hence one of the reason for buying the book!
