    Uhhh. Don’t all flags have two sides?

    It must be on the flag that the seal in the center is different on each side. Otherwise, I think all flags have 2 sides.

    Three volumes about collecting flies? A short essay would long enough.

    There was an old ostrich who lived in a shoe. She had so many children, she didn’t know what to do.

    Paraguay must like to have pair-o’-everything.

    Oregon is the only state flag with two sides. It has the shield from its state’s seal on the front and a picture of a beaver on the back.

    If you need something to soothe you to sleep, I suppose that fly collecting series of books would do the trick.

    I’d like to borrow that fly collection, and take it fishing.

    If you take a flag and turn one end over and stitch it to the other end then you will have a flag with only one side. It becomes a Möbius strip. All others that I am aware of have two sides.

    Sjöberg, biologist and literature critic, wrote essays which were collected into three volumes Flugfällan (The Fly Trap), Flyktkonsten (The Art of Escape or Escape Art) , and Russinkungen The Raisin King. Ripley’s researcher has missed here.

    Wikipedia has an article “Flags whose reverse differs from the obverse” . Paraguay might currently be the only country with a flag reverse different from the obverse, but it hasn’t always been so. And some non-country divisions have flags that are such.

    I would like to introduce Mr. Sjoberg to Mr. Renfield who’s very interested in flies.
