Flags, banners and emblems are important to any nation, even more so to a nation like ours which prides itself in its cultural imagery.
The Vexillological Institute of Unixploria's primary tasks are to design, research and promote our flags.
The national flag of the Kingdom of Unixploria features the cross of Unixploria, a Christian cross representing our heritage and faith. The colors represent the sun (yellow), sky (blue) and red (symbolizing passion and blood, including both faith and national character). The Saltire is a joint symbol for our Christian heritage, and a sign of the Christian ecumenical force around the world. In a way, the Unixplorian cross represents both tradition and our curiousness leading to the exploration of foreign lands.
Vexillology is the scientific study of the history, symbolism and usage of flags. The term is often used to refer to any serious study or interest in flags.
The word itself is a combination of the Latin word vexillum (meaning "flag") and the Greek suffix -logia ("study").
The International Federation of Vexillological Associations define vexillology as "the creation and development of a body of knowledge about flags of all types, their forms and functions, and of scientific theories and principles based on that knowledge." (Source)
