These flags of the world are actually each the extended cape of a super hero. The fantastic figure lies on its side with outstretched arms hanging on to the rope. The colorful cape flaps behind, making the champion appear to fly or leap through the air.
The amazing heroes are chosen with care. For
example Comoros predominantly green flag is the altered green cape of Rooftop Avenger; Libyas is the cape of Mister Miracle, also green; the red cape of Superman is the model for the flags of Vietnam, Albania, Tunisia and Turkey; Knight Crusaders white cape becomes the background for Cyprus flag; Star Boy flies Niues flag; Batman flies Somalias and Palaus, etc.

||Only the old-fashioned superhero's wear capes. Didn't you see The Incredibles?
||Surely this should go in one of the (many) superhero categories?
||Fabulous! May entice children to learn all the different flags.
