Let’s start with a few of our best selling Continent flags for sale with a little refresher on some facts & figures!
What actually is a Continent and how many are there?
Africa, the Americas, Antarctica, Asia, Australia together with Oceania, and Europe are considered to be Continents.
The term continent is used to differentiate between the various large areas of the earth into which all the land surface of Earth is divided. The 'mountain top' regions of the planet not flooded by water. This also means the shape and borders of the continents are ultimately defined not by conventions, but in the first place by the level of the surrounding water. More water, less land - other outlines. Even more water, like that stored away as ice in the poles and glaciers, and you might live on a water planet - there would be no continents.
So, a continent is "a large, continuous area of land on Earth". Actually, all continents together constitute less than one-third of the earth's surface, literally! The fact is, more than two-thirds of the Earth's surface is covered by water. Two-thirds of the continental land mass is located in the Northern Hemisphere (the upper half of the globe, north of the equator)
ASIA (43,820,000 sq km) includes 50 countries, and it is the most populated continent, the 60% of the total population of the Earth live here.
AFRICA (30,370,000 sq km) comprises 54 countries. It is the hottest continent and home of the world's largest desert, the Sahara, occupying the 25% of the total area of Africa.
NORTH AMERICA (24,490,000 sq km) includes 23 countries led by the USA as the largest economy in the world.
SOUTH AMERICA (17,840,000 sq km) comprises 12 countries. Here is located the largest forest, the Amazon rainforest, which covers 30% of the South America total area.
EUROPE (10,180,000 sq km) comprises 51 countries. It is the most developed economically continent with the European Union as the biggest economic and political union in the world.
AUSTRALIA (9,008,500 sq km) includes 14 countries. It is the least populated continent after Antarctica, only 0.3% of the total Earth population live here.
