The Flag and publications

The present flag of the society wsa designed by Ole Bjerring in the early 1980's following protests from the Flag Institute that it too closely resembled their flag. The flag was designed after the old Nordic Union flag, which was yellow with a red Scandinavian cross. Th Nordic Union flag wsa born in the funeral procession for Queen Phillippa in 1430. The current cross carries flag lines with the vexillological knot in the center of the flag.

The first flag was designed by the late Dr. Jur Alte Grahl-Madsen of Bergen, Norway.

The society first started publishing Nordisk Flaggskrift in 1978 and would be quite rare today. The periodical stopped with issue 14 in 1991. Nordisk Flaggkontakt was started in 1984 and is issued twice annually.
