How did flags come to be? Flag-like symbols have been in existence since the ancient times. It is not clear though where the world flags that we know today originated. Some say they originated in China, others believe that the first true flag was the vexillum of the Roman Empire, while some insist that there have been citations flags in the Mahabharata. While there is no unified origin, the modern-day flag surely had started sometime in the 18th century. Flags have then been used as signals and symbols for battle, military, and maritime purposes, among a few others. Even today, flags are continually used for a wide variety of purposes.
