More membersEdit

Does anyone else know any more members to be added to the "Members" list? ANNAfoxlover 03:52, 9 January 2007 (UTC)

I think this section should be renamed "Notable Members" and limited to members for whom one could justify having their own entry in wikipedia. A more comprehensive list of members would be appropriate for the NAVA website, but not here. --ScottMainwaring 20:18, 9 January 2007 (UTC)
Since other than Whitney Smith none of the members listed are notable, I've deleted the section. One does not expect to look up an organization in an encylopedia and see a comprehensive list of all of its members. I'm a NAVA member myself, but I can't see how this is an appropriate use of Wikipedia. --ScottMainwaring 05:18, 21 January 2007 (UTC)

Go, Scott!Edit

Well, thank you, Scott, for editing my list of NAVA meetings and changing it into a table. It looks great! Okay, how about this - I'll work on making some more meeting flags, okay? Thanks again, ANNAfoxlover. 01:07, 15 February 2007 (UTC)

NAVA meeting flagsEdit

We got authorization from NAVA to use the meeting flags, past and present, on Wikipedia. You can use the license at Image:Flag of NAVA.svg on the images. It would be best to take the images from NAVA's website. User:Zscout370 (Return Fire) 19:19, 7 July 2007 (UTC)

The images from NAVA's website are of poor quality; however, I may be able to come up with better images. I would love to make SVG image files, but I do not have an SVG-editing program. I hope they turn out okay. A•N•N•A hi! 20:20, 7 July 2007 (UTC)
Grab Inkscape. I use the program myself. The reason why I posted the messages here is that, based on emails with NAVA staff, we can use the images, but I just don't have the time to do it all. User:Zscout370 (Return Fire) 20:21, 7 July 2007 (UTC)
I'll get to it ASAP. Thanks a lot! A•N•N•A hi! 20:23, 7 July 2007 (UTC)
I added info on the 2007 and 2008 meetings, but I'm not sure how best to upload the flag images. Any help would be appreciated! --Anietor (talk) 21:42, 28 June 2008 (UTC)
I need to get permission to upload the 2007 image, and the 2008 flag wasn't created yet, to my knowledge. User:Zscout370 (Return Fire) 07:53, 29 June 2008 (UTC)
Useless opinion: These flags are great! (talk) —Preceding undated comment was added at 23:00, 8 November 2008 (UTC).


The flag shown for NAVA 28 (Portland, 1994) is that of the city of Portland. According to [1] the conference flag was the NAVA chevron with green in place of the red, and a gold beaver (for Oregon) on the blue. —Tamfang (talk) 09:30, 16 October 2016 (UTC)

NAVA 21 / ICV 12 - 1987: the description mentions a mural crown but I don't see one. I do see a torse. —Tamfang (talk) 09:35, 16 October 2016 (UTC)

Flag descriptionEdit

There is an obvious error in the descriptive specs of the NAVA flag. I did not correct it, as I am not a NAVA member, and the error originates on the NAVA homepage. The base of the blue triangle is not, obviously, equal to the overall length of the flag: it DOES equal the length of the flag minus the widths of the two white stripes. NAVA members may very likely say, "we knew what we meant, " but an encyclopedia, I think, has to strive for more accuracy. I will copy this note to Scott, as he may want to address the issue himself, or indeed put me in my place if I am incorrect. I believe, however, that I an not.

Why does "Seal On A Bedsheet" redirect here?Edit

Just curious. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 2001:56A:F390:2A00:5945:C5DC:A3A2:B7C3 (talk) 19:42, 25 April 2020 (UTC)

It's a common descriptor for terribly designed flags of US states and cities which just slap their seal on to a monocolour field (usually some shade of blue). Hence, a seal on a bedsheet. Although, I am not sure why the redirect itself was even created. boldblazer (talk) 01:27, 23 July 2020 (UTC)
