The October 2016 edition of the PFA club newsletter, The Vexilloid Tabloid #60, is here, featuring:
- 1 October Is World Vexillology Day (Scott Mainwaring)
- How Albany, Oregon, Got a Flag (Cole Pouliot)
- The Flag of Null Island (Ted Kaye)
- 1993 Proposals for Macau’s Flag (Patrick Genna)
- Powell Boulevard’s Flag Parade (Ted Kaye)
In this issue, Scott Mainwaring tells us about his idea for an annual celebration of flags, flag studies, and flag design every 1 October: World Vexillology Day (or Vexiday for short). So far, he has gotten buy-in from 15 flag associations around the world, including the PFA and NAVA. Other sponsoring associations include: Vexillology Ireland, the Croatian Heraldic and Vexillological Association, Bandiere Storiche (Italy), the New England Vexillological Association, the New Zealand Flag Association, the Southern African Vexillological Association, the Burgee Data Archives (Canada), the Greater Unified Albany Vexillological Association (Oregon), the Heraldry Society of Slovenia, the Catalan Association of Vexillology, the Flag Data Center (Czech Republic), the Italian Center of Vexillological Studies, and the Breton Vexillological Society. All of these will be celebrating in some manner on Saturday, 1 October (see www.vexiday.org for details). If you are part of another association, please join in and let Scott know at firstname.lastname@example.org. How will you be celebrating?
