Flags are an important part of the identity of a country as a symbolic representation of the country and its ideals. Flags are much more than decoration, serving to unite the people behind the symbol of a common identity, acting as an icon of the nation as represented to other nations. The flags of countries should be treated with respect and honor.
The colors and symbols on each flag are illustrations of the ideals of a country, reflecting the history and pride of its people. Flags are used to represent nations at international sports meets, global conferences and other international events.
