Flag Design Principles

A useful guide to the design and use of flags was prepared in 2014 by a distinguished group of vexillologists (persons who engage in the scholarly study of flags) and vexillographers (persons who design flags). The Report on the Guiding Principles on Flag Design was published by the Joint Commission on Vexillographic Principles. It is a short, succinct document that outlines the best practices for flag design in plain English.
