Flags Help Tell So Many News Stories

Flag Institute Spring Meeting report

Last Saturday saw the annual Spring Meeting of the Flag Institute, the UK’s leading body on flags and their use in all aspects of daily life. The Institute, funded entirely by members and organised events, consist of some of the most passionate and enthusiastic vexillologists (those who study flags and flag-flying) in the country. Their Spring Meeting is an excellent opportunity to meet up in the fine weather of May and discuss recent news, current activities, and future planning which help shape laws, attitudes, and the commercial flag-making industry in our country.
