Riassunto: City flags in the United States display a broad range of history, symbolism, and usage. The flag-studies experts of North America have produced the first comprehensive work on the subject, documenting the municipal flags of the largest 100 U.S. cities, all 50 state capitals, and at least two cities in each state.
The 400 pages of text have an article on each city and over 250 gray-scale illustrations, plus 15 pages showing all 150 current flags in full color. Each article describes in detail the flag’s design, adoption date, proportions, symbolism, selection, designer, and predecessors.
The North American Vexillological Association / Association nord-américaine de vexillologie is a United States and Canadian bi-national, non-profit, scholarly organization dedicated to the study of flags and their cultural, historical, political, and social significance.
