Synopsis: 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.

About the Author: John M. Purcell, Ph.D., (1932-2012) was a member of the Raven editorial board and served as the Association's president from 1981-1983. His vexillological writings appeared in The Flag Bulletin, Raven, NAVA News, Banderas, and Banderín, among others. Co-editor of Flagwaver, the journal of Great Waters Association of Vexillology from its inception in 1996 until 2012. As a Whitney Smith Fellow and honorary member, he held two of the Association's highest honors. He also received the New Directions in Vexillology Award from the Canadian Flag Association. At his death, he was professor emeritus of Spanish and Foreign Language Education at Cleveland State University (Ohio).

James Croft edited NAVA News from 1996-1997. Founder and director of the Institute of Civic Heraldry since 1980, his vexillological interests focus on city flags and coats of arms throughout the world. He has written extensively on municipal flags, including The Civic Coats of Arms of Mozambique and many articles on Canadian and U.S. civic flags. From 1975-1976 he lived in Johnannesburg, studying South Africa’s civic flags and coats of arms; his paper South African Civic Flags won the Association's Capt. William Driver Award in 1981. He chaired the organizing committee for the Association's 37th annual meeting in Montreal in 2003.

Rich Monahan, an Association officer from 2003-2006, holds an associate degree from the University of Akron and is the Vice President of the Great Waters Association of Vexillology and contributes to its journal, Flagwaver. He also belongs to the Canadian Flag Association, the Flag Institute, and the New England Vexillological Association. His interests lie primarily in how flags relate to the broad political and historical movements they represent. He is a sergeant in the Ohio Army National Guard, having served four years on active duty in Europe and at Fort Stewart, Ga.
