Tidbits Regarding Afghanistan:

One of the two official languages of Afghanistan, Persian, is generally referred to as “Farsi” in Iran and “Dari” in Afghanistan.

This fact from Languages of the World by Kenneth Katzner.

The internationally recognized flag of Afghanistan is the flag of the pre-Taliban government. It is the flag that has been flying at the UN throughout the Taliban regime that was never internationally recognized.  

The Flag of Afghanistan

We have over 250 different flags in stock in many sizes.

Badshah Khan, the Afghan contemporary of Mahtama Ghandi, trained a well-disciplined army of 100,000 non-violent Pashtun warriors in the struggle for independence from British colonial rule.

The Personal Corner

Here’s what one of our clever customers in Texas did with our patches, representing some of the countries he’s been to. He was kind enough to send us this photo, so we’d like to pass it along.

The well travelled customer.
