THE VEXILLOLOGICAL INSTITUTE OF UNIXPLORIA


Flags, banners, and emblems are essential to any nation, even more so to our society, which prides itself in its cultural imagery.

 

The Vexillological Institute of Unixploria's primary task is to design, research, and promote our flags.

 

ABOUT THE FLAG OF UNIXPLORIA

The national flag of the Kingdom of Unixploria features the cross of Unixploria, a Christian cross representing our heritage and faith.


The Saltire is a universal symbol for our Christian heritage and a sign of the Christian ecumenical force worldwide. The colors represent the sun (yellow), sky (blue), and red (symbolizing passion and blood, including both religion and national character). In a way, the Unixplorian cross represents tradition and curiosity, leading to exploring foreign lands.

WHAT IS VEXILLOLOGY?


Vexillology is the scientific study of flags' history, symbolism, and usage. The term is often used to refer to any serious research 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)
