Introduction

Flag of NAVA
In 2001, the NAVA (Northern American Vexillological Association) asked their members all around the world to give notes to rate each US state, federal district or territory flag, and each Canadian province or territory flag. More than half of them failed to reach only a standard 5.0 grade. After the survey, the only state that significantly changed its flag was Georgia, in the last position of the poll (with an unhonored 2.36 grade). More states should follow the example.

Find out more at the 2001 NAVA survey page.

"Study of flags", literally. Whitney Smith, co-founder of "scientific" study of flags, created this word in 1957. It comprises the term vexillum, the name of banners carried by Roman soldiers, and logos, which means "knowledge" or "science" in Greek.
