If flags are good enough for Jasper Johns and Charles Pachter, they’re good enough for you!


Every country and most territories and cities have their own flag. In many cases, these internationally recognised symbols have become synonymous with their regions so why not feature them in your travel photography?  Flags are often colourful and eye-catching flying against a clear blue sky, or better yet, when beside a famous monument or landmark. They also provide an instant identifier for the country in which the photo was taken. Look for a good angle or background…but take caution: in some countries it is illegal to photograph the flag.
