SEV 17th Congress

[SEV 17th Congress flag]
by Luis Miguel Arias

Several proposals for the flag of the 17th Congress of the Sociedad Española de Vexilología (SEV) held in Valencia in 2002 were submitted by Spanish vexillologists. The winner was Luis Miguel Arias's.

The square white field is that of the SEV flag. The two digits which make up the number 17 show the flags of Valencia (both the city and the autonomous community) and Spain.

The bat (Valencian "rat penat" or winged rat) is a common charge in municipal arms of the former territories of the Kingdom of Aragon, particularly in Valencian ones, the most known one being of course that of Valencia city.

Even though it is now always blazoned and shown as a (usually black) bat, it is actually a mistaken representation of the crest of the Aragonese royal arms, a dragon. This can still be seen on some arms, as is the case with the arms of the Valencian Community or those of the Diputación Provincial (provincial government) of Valencia
