International Standard Book Number
The INTERNATIONAL STANDARD BOOK NUMBER (ISBN) is a unique numeric commercial book identifier. An ISBN is assigned to each edition and variation (except reprintings) of a book. For example, an e-book , a paperback and a hardcover edition of the same book would each have a different ISBN. The ISBN is 13 digits long if assigned on or after 1 January 2007, and 10 digits long if assigned before 2007. The method of assigning an ISBN is nation-based and varies from country to country, often depending on how large the publishing industry is within a country. The initial ISBN configuration of recognition was generated in 1967 based upon the 9-digit STANDARD BOOK NUMBERING (SBN) created in 1966. The 10-digit ISBN format was developed by the International Organization for Standardization (ISO) and was published in 1970 as international standard ISO 2108 (the SBN code can be converted to a ten digit ISBN by prefixing it with a zero)

Flagpole
A FLAG is a piece of fabric (most often rectangular or quadrilateral) with a distinctive design that is used as a symbol , as a signaling device, or as decoration. The term flag is also used to refer to the graphic design employed, and flags have since evolved into a general tool for rudimentary signalling and identification, especially in environments where communication is similarly challenging (such as the maritime environment where semaphore is used). National flags are patriotic symbols with varied wide-ranging interpretations, often including strong military associations due to their original and ongoing military uses. Flags are also used in messaging, advertising , or for other decorative purposes. The study of flags is known as vexillology , from the Latin
Latin
word vexillum, meaning flag or banner . Due to the use of flags by military units, 'flag' is also used as the name of some military units

Al-Maquar
AL-MAQUAR (Arabic : المقر‎‎, English: "Headquarters") is a royal residential complex in Amman , Jordan . The compound spans 40 hectares and serves as the residence of the royal family of Jordan. The area was originally the camp-site for the armies of the Arab Revolt , who captured Amman in 1918. The first palace to be built on the complex was the Raghadan Palace , completed in 1926. Raghadan became the official residence of the first King of Jordan, King Abdullah I , who then went on to commission the construction of two more, smaller palaces in the 1930s; Al-Ma'wa (The Sanctuary) and Al-Qasr as-Saghir (The Small Palace). Construction on another, larger project, the Basman Palace, began in 1950. Although it was originally intended solely as a guesthouse, Basman became King Hussein 's primary residence after he ascended to the throne in 1953, at the age of 18, following the death of Abdullah I and the brief reign of his father Talal
