Almost all countries of this small, colourful and diverse world have flags or banners today. Behind each of the following flags there are little stories and anecdotes about the respective nations. Some of them are curious or unexpected, others are rather sober or even adventurous. But it is always my personal view on what I felt while travelling these countries. Everyone who has taken the trouble to visit this site is invited to click on the flags to overcome his limits and discover new things.
