Flag Detective History

For ten years strong, Flag Detective has been used as a tool to help people who are looking to identify flags they have seen and weren’t sure of their origins. The images were originally created by Edward Mooney, Jr. in collaboration with Flags of the World.

The site was initially conceived on November 8, 1998 and came to life on March 1, 1999. Flag Detective has gone through many revisions over the years, updating links and upgrading site graphics. With the latest revision, the site has been given a facelift, removing an outdated frame structure and providing a more user friendly navigation.

While we can not claim to illustrate or categorize every flag ever flown, we strive to have the most common flags you may see in your travels near and far. If the flag you are looking for is not illustrated here, we urge you to continue your search through our Sites of Interest page!

If you would like to suggest a flag for us to include in our database, please email us at Webmaster@FlagDetective.com.
