Welcome, Société française de vexillologie

Our latest sponsor is SFV, the Société française de vexillologie (French Society of Vexillology). SFV is a Paris-based non-profit founded in 1985 that publishes the quarterly Franciae VexillaIt joined FIAV in 1991.

The society’s flag uses French colors and is formed of a white cross fimbriated by an alternatively red and blue border. These borders are separated from quarterly blue and red squares by a white border.

The flag of SFV.

In addition to its website drapeaux-sfv.org, the society maintains a news blog and Facebook page.  Find them on Instagram at @sfv_drapeaux and on Twitter at @DrapeauxSfv.

Bienvenue, SFV!


FIAV recognizes Vexiday

The Fédération internationale des associations vexillologiques (FIAV, the International Federation of Vexillological Associations) recognized 1 October as World Vexillology Day at its most recent meeting, the 27th International Congress of Vexillology (ICV) in London. We would like to thank the Flag Research Center for making this successful proposal to FIAV, giving this yearly event truly global recognition.
