The World Flag Chart is a public domain educational website showcasing the history of the world's flags.
As a historical resource, this site includes some symbols which represent violent and hateful ideologies. In posting these images, we emphatically reject the politics behind them. The creators of this site stand fiercely opposed to colonialism, racism, fascism, and antisemitism. We proudly celebrate the remarkable diversity of humankind and affirm that hatred has no place in vexillology.
