The public is invited to their free Preble Lecture on Friday, June 17, from 3:30 to 5:00 p.m. Typically, those speaking at the Preble Lecture are local flag experts.

    NAVA members are flag enthusiasts and scholars and include more than 800 individuals from the U.S., Canada, and more than 20 other countries. The flag for their 2022 meeting in St. Augustine was designed by Matthew Thomas of the United Kingdom. Pictured above, the flag pays homage first to the "Sunshine State" with a golden field and then to the Spanish Empire with a half-Burgandy cross. Above the cross is the well-known stylized outline of the Castillo, and below are two wavy blue bars to represent both the St. Augustine Bay and the Atlantic Ocean.
