Announcement of the Death of Michael Faul

It is with great sadness that the Flag Institute announces the death on the 1st January 2019 of our former Secretary and long time Editor of Flagmaster Michael Faul MA FFI FFIAV. A dedicated servant of the Flag Institute who was possibly the leading authority on flags in the immediate post-Crampton/Smith era of Vexillology. We mourn his passing and send our condolences to his family.

    VALE GOOD FRIEND: Michael was a great person, a true gentleman who so generously shared his vast knowledge of flags with many colleagues and acquaintances, inspiring all who had the privilege to know him. He will be be remembered for his good deeds, his absolute devotion to his Family and his expertise in all aspects of Vexillology. Vale, Michael I will fly the Yorkshire West Riding flag which you designed at half mast in your memory and your partner Ethel who predeceased you. John Vaughan Life Member of The Flag Institute and long time correspondent.

    RIP Michael. I only became ware of his death recently. We corresponded for over thirty years but never met in person. However we got to know each other and to exchange much information and share many laughs. Flagmaster under his direction was to my mind the best Journal of its kind in the world and it’s demise is also to be regretted.
    Regards to All from South Africa
