Welcome, North American Vexillological Association

The North American Vexillological Association – Association nord-américaine de vexillologie (NAVA) is one of the world’s premiere flag studies organizations. Founded in 1967 it is one of twelve charter members of FIAV.

The association publishes the scholarly journal Raven, and has made freely available online nearly all of its contents, including four book-length special issues that should be part of any vexillological library. It also hosts an annual meeting in various cities across the US and Canada; the 50th of these major flag conferences will take place in San Jose, California on 14-16 October 2016.

We are honored to have their endorsement and participation in World Vexillology Day.
