The Association was formed in May, 2004 at McMurdo Station, Antarctica by Tom Hamann to promote the study and appreciation of flags (especially those relating to Antarctic and Polar Regions).
The makeup of the flag has the following significance:
Blue: Represents the 24 hour day of the summer
Black: Represents the 24 hour night of the winter season
White: Represents the ice and snow of the Antarctic continent The Diamond in the middle if divided across the equator represents the "A" of Antarctica and "V" of Vexillology
The Diamond also represents the 4 compass points representing the compass points leading away from the geographic South Pole.
There are no dues, members meet monthly and all either present or not
present on the Antarctic continent are welcome to join.
