Listen to an audio clip

Flags have been used for over 4,000 years. Every country in the world has its own flag. A flag is a large piece of coloured material used as a symbol for the people and the land. Flags may include pictures or designs and these tell a story about the country, its history and the people. The colours found on flags may have special meanings too. Most flags are rectangular in shape, although one of the flags from Granny's travels is square and you'll find out which one in this pack. A flag is flown on a tall pole called a flagstaff. Flags are used for many different reasons and on different occasions, for example at the Olympic Games.
