To all Vexillologists:
You might be interested in the attached image of the flag of the newly formed Heraldry and Vexillology Society of Malta.
We will be participating at the International Congress in Cape Town in August and have put in a bid to join FIAV.
Some vexillologists may have already seen our journal, which as yet is a short stencilled publication of 8 sides of A4 paper, with a colour insert showing the 67 flags of all the local Councils.
The HAVSOM Flag is based on the white-red national flag of Malta, with a counter-changed "pile" or "V" to indicate vexillology. Upon the V is a counter-changed shield, with a "George Cross" which ends up as the national shield of arms of Malta, to indicate the interest in heraldry.
Since the use of the George Cross is restricted by law, the Society had to obtain official permission from the Prime Minister of Malta to be able to reproduce this on our insignia. This approval was granted in February this year.
Members are welcome to join the Society, subscription is £m5, (that is US $12.50) per annum and entitles members to:
I hope you will like the flag!
