Description:

Flags Australia is the operating name of the Flag Society of Australia Inc, which is a not-for-profit incorporated association that brings together individuals interested in researching, preserving and publishing information on Australian and international flags. The study of flags is called vexillology. The Flag Society of Australia was established on 20 August 1983, in Melbourne, Victoria. The society is non-political and maintains a strict neutrality with regard to the continuing "Australian Flag Debate" - the question of whether or not the Australian flag should be changed. However, Flags Australia takes a keen interest in the issue and has published flag information about the Australian national flag and its usage as well as possible new flag designs. Flags Australia has subscriber-members in most of the states and territories of Australia and overseas. Informal meetings of members are held each three months in Melbourne and Sydney and visitors are welcome. Australia has had a surprisingly large number of flags during its relatively short period of recorded history. Whether for the collector, hobbyist or vexillologist, Australian flags are a rewarding field to explore. Flags of the world, past and present, are also an important part of Flags Australia's interest. In June 1984, the Society commenced regular publication of its official journal, Crux Australis, which is produced four times each year. The first and only authoritative flag publication produced in Australia, Crux Australis contains articles about Australian and international flags and associated matters. Flags Australia is a member of the International Federation of Vexillological Associations ("FIAV"), under whose auspices International Congresses of Vexillology (ICV) are held every two years. Flags Australia has been represented at every congress since the 11th ICV in Madrid (May 1985). In September 1989, the Society hosted the 13th ICV in Melbourne and it hosted the 26th ICV held in Sydney 31 August to 4 September 2015. For link to ICV26 website click here or image below.
