Happy birthday, Flag Institute!

The Flag Institute – founded on 23 April 1971 by Dr William Crampton and his band of bold vexillological pioneers – celebrates its 49th birthday today.

The Institute sends its thanks and best wishes to all members, friends and colleagues. Your support over the decades is greatly appreciated. Next year, of course, will mark the Institute’s Golden Jubilee, to be celebrated – if circumstances permit – in London next spring.

Sadly the COVID-19 crisis forced the cancellation of the Spring Conference 2020. However, outline plans continue for the Winter Conference 2020. Please note the venue and date in your diary: People’s History Museum, Manchester, Saturday 14 November 2020.

Updates will follow when available.

In the meantime stay safe and well – and look forward to meeting up again soon.
