International Flags

International Flags

INTERNATIONAL FLAGS was a promotional game issued by Mobil Oil in 1969. This was a collect-and-win game with instant winners. The game consisted of a game piece given free to customers each time they visited a participating Mobil gas station, which were to be collected for a chance to win a cash prize. The game piece is a packet that contains one of 18 different world flag stamps.

The stamps could be affixed to the International Flags game card (also free) which was divided into four sections. If all the stamps in any one of the sections could be collected, the player won the prize for that section. The prizes were $25, $100, $1,000 and $5,000. In addition, there were seven different instant winner stamps available with prizes ranging from 50-cents to $5,000.

Interestingly, there is a statement printed on the game card explaining why the U. S. flag is not included as one of the 18 international flags. It reads "Use of the American flag on this card might not conform with certain state laws."
