Stars on Flags of the World comprises of tracings of stars from all the flags of the world, which have been overlapped and printed onto a ruled, graph paper typically used in schools. On each print the artist has handwritten "Data Updated: July 2011", along with annotating the scale. The work is based on Gupta's continued interest in ideas around the un-fixedness of geographical markings, imagined communities, nationhood, and mobility.
