Saluting my flag collection

Sometimes, my father goes on business trips. While he is on the trips, he gets me gifts. Usually he gets me flags. I have a collection of them.

Most flags have many colors, while others have only two colors. I have flags from the United States, Ireland, Wales, Britain, Canada, Maryland, Georgia and Washington, D.C. I find the Maryland flag most interesting. It has four parts. Its colors are yellow, black, white and red. Canada's flag has a maple leaf in the middle of it. I like its originality.

I like that I have parts of different countries and states, represented by their flags. Sometimes, I like to learn about the different places my flags are from.

Right now, my dad is traveling. He went to Rome, and now he is in Malta. I hope he gets me more flags from those places! I would love to get flags from Australia, Antarctica, Russia, India, China, Japan and Botswana.

I also would like to get South Carolina's flag because it is very creative, and I like the moon that is on it. I hope I can go on a trip with my dad and get more flags.
