International Congress of Vexillology (ICV)

Every two years, vexillologists worldwide meet to share information, opinion and ideas at the International Congress of Vexillology (ICV).

The first ICV took place in Muiderberg (The Netherlands) in 1965.

Since 1969 the International Federation of Vexillological Assocations (FIAV) has overseen the award of each congress.

The Flag Institute has hosted three ICVs: ICV5 (London, 1973), ICV19 (York, 2001) and ICV27 (London, 2017).

We were also co-host with the Heraldry Society of ICV10 (Oxford, 1983).

ICV29 – hosted by Heraldica Slovenica – will take place in Ljubljana (Slovenia), 11-15 July 2022.
