Flags, banners, and emblems are essential to any nation, even more so to a society like ours, which prides itself in its cultural imagery.
The Vexillological Institute of Unixploria's primary tasks is 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 religion and national character). The Saltire is a universal symbol for our Christian heritage and a sign of the Christian ecumenical force worldwide. In a way, the Unixplorian cross represents both tradition and curiosity, leading to foreign lands' exploration.
Vexillology is the scientific study of the history, symbolism, and usage of flags. 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)
