Vexilloid Tabloids #41 and #42

Our association’s newsletter, the Vexilloid Tabloid, is into its 40s thanks to the continuing hard work of editor Ted Kaye and contributing PFA members.

The Vexilloid Tabloid #41 features:

  • Updating the Portland Flag’s Specs?
  • Flags at Camp Withycombe
  • Constitution of the PFA
  • A Newspaper Editor’s International Flags

The Vexilloid Tabloid #42 features:

  • The PFA Joins FIAV
  • The “Kingdom of Wallachia”
  • Gastro-Vexillology
  • Flags in the Books
  • Flags on a Baltic Cruise

And as (almost) always, both issues include Flags in the News, Portland Flag Miscellany, the “What’s that Flag?” (from quizmaster Max Liberman), and notes from our last meeting.

See portlandflag.org/vexilloid-tabloid for access to these and all previous issues, and below for a sampling of images:
