Vexillology is the study of flags and every two years vexillologists gather to share their interest and knowledge about flags. The International Congress of Vexillology is a week-long event that consists of lectures on a diverse range of flag topics, exhibitions, excursions to flag related sites and simply catching up with friends with a shared interest.
Heraldica Slovenica invites you to join us in Ljubljana, Slovenia, July 12–16, 2021 for the Twenty-Ninth International Congress of Vexillology.
Ljubljana, the capital, is a vibrant city which is developing with a clear vision, putting the quality of life at the forefront. Its image features a harmonic blend of Baroque, Art Nouveau and newer styles, complemented by a medieval hilltop castle and a river. A rich agenda of cultural events, a lively café society and an active youth scene fuelled by 55,000 university students contribute to Ljubljana’s dynamic flair. It is also distinguished by an attractive historic quarter with a cosy, lounge-style feel, which is ideal for networking, and also offers very good value for money.
The European Commission has awarded Ljubljana with the prestigious title of European Green Capital 2016, while the World Travel and Tourism Council has named it winner of the Tourism for Tomorrow 2015 award in the destinations category. Both are an important recognition of Ljubljana’s sustainable development strategy and its visible results.
