As the UK’s national flag charity the Flag Institute is the only free source of authoritative vexillological information. If your question is about flags, flag protocol, or flag use then our Flag Enquiry Team is what you need. Your question will be sent to our vexillology department and reviewed by the Assistant to the Chief Vexillologist. The answer to your question will be prepared with input from one or more eminent members of the Flag Institute and (where necessary) reference to the Flag Institute Library. We offer this unique service entirely free, but invite you to make a small voluntary donation if you would like to support our work.
General correspondence. If you’re not sure who to contact, please use this option. The Flag Institute’s Correspondence Secretary will answer your enquiry or direct it to the appropriate department.
If you are a UK Government department, a foreign or Commonwealth government, or a military unit seeking advice on symbols and flags – or if you need a formal statement, judgement, or ruling from the Flag Institute relating to flags – please contact the Chief Vexillologist.
Questions relating to the operation of the Flag Institute including: policy, business, sponsorship, partnerships, volunteering, appointments, publishing, special projects, and internships. If you wish to engage the Flag Institute in anything other than the answering of flag related questions, this may be the right option for you.
