Teaching children about world flags can be a fun experience. Every country has its own flag and today we’re featuring our world flag bunting printable to help assist you in educating your children about world flags.
What do flags symbolize?
A flag is not just a symbol of the world; it’s a way for a country to portray itself to the rest of the world we live in. Some colors in world flags do have a meaning, such as:
- Red meaning valor or hardiness, or
- White representing purity and innocence.
Any country’s flag helps give it a symbol to represent their area of the world.
Why do so many flags have stars?
Stars have been used on many world flags over the years. Stars can often represent different things for each country. For example, the stars on the China flag represent the communist party and four working classes. Even though the stars on world flags can represent something, they often have a similar meaning. Stars on world flags are a sign of divinity and good luck.
