27th INTERNATIONAL CONGRESS OF VEXILLOLOGY
The 27th International Congress of Vexillology (ICV27), organised by the Flag Institute for the International Federation of Vexillological Organisations (FIAV) will be held in the Huxley Building, Imperial College London, 7-11 August 2017.
Organised in turn by a different FIAV member, the biennial ICV has travelled widely in the past fifty years – most recently to Stockholm (2003), Buenos Aires (2005), Berlin (2007), Yokohama (2009), Washington D.C. (2011), Rotterdam (2013) and Sydney (2015) – attracting vexillologists worldwide to meet, learn, debate and socialise in friendly, convivial surroundings.
We very much hope that you can join us in London to renew old friendships, make new contacts and broaden your vexillological horizons.
