Welcome, Flag Data Center

The Flag Data Center (Středisko vexilologických informací — SVI) maintains an extensive repository of information on municipal flags in the Czech Republic on their website vexi.info.  (A small subset of these can currently be seen on our Welcome Page.)  Established in 1994, SVI became a member of FIAV, the International Federation of Vexillological Associations, in 2003.

We welcome SVI as the twelfth sponsor of World Vexillology Day!

Welcome, Heraldica Slovenica

NOTE: Heraldica Slovenica recently adopted a new flag.

We welcome Heraldica Slovenica (the Heraldry Society of Slovenia) as the latest sponsor of and participant in World Vexillology Day.  Here is their announcement:

Heraldica Slovenica annually holds a Slovenian Flag Day celebration on 7 April at the geographical center of Slovenia. In addition to Slovenian patriotic activities we strongly support the idea of World Vexillology Day. On 1 October we will share knowledge about the world’s flags and also organize a Vexiday event in the capital Ljubljana.

We recommend the initiative to all other vexillological associations and believe that flags deserve their world flag day.

In Slovenian:

Heraldica Slovenica prireja 7. aprila vsakoletno slovesnost ob dnevu slovenske zastave na Geometričnem središču Slovenije. Društvo poleg patriotske aktivnosti močno podpira idejo o svetovnem zastavoslovnem dnevu, se bo zavzelo za populariziranje vede in 1. oktobra organiziralo veksilološki dan v Ljubljani.

Vsem zastavoslovnim združenjem toplo priporočamo iniciativo in menimo, da si zastave zaslužijo svoj svetovni praznik.

Established in 1991, Heraldica Slovenica has been a member of the International Federation of Vexillological Associations (FIAV) since 1993.
