This is a large series of trade cards, showing the arms and flags of countries. The series is not dated, but based on the images on the cards, as well as the names of countries, can be dated as <1918. The series was printed in Holland, but the printer, nor the designer is known.
As trade cards the series was issued by a number of Dutch companies :
Some of the series are numbered and all numbered series indicate that 72 cards were issued.
As tobacco cards the series was issued by James in the UK.
Van Dijk's was a company based in Haarlem (Schoten), the Netherlands, producing 'beschuit', a type of Dutch toast. I have no furter information on the company.
For all known cards see here.
Unlike the series issued by the other companies, there is no text on the reverse.
