Berlin, the capital of reunited Germany, is situated in the very heart of Europe and forms a connecting link between the East and the West. Vexillologists from all over the world will meet here in a metropolis which is historic and at the same time very lively.
The Congress venue will be the "Berlin Zeughaus" (Berlin Arsenal), the home of the German Historical Museum, which holds a very comprehensive collection of several thousand historical flags and banners.
The Congress will take place in the "Zeughauskino", the modern cinema of the Museum.
In April 2006 the German Historical Museum opened its new permanent exhibition "German History in Pictures and Relics of the Past", with many flags and banners on display.
The German Vexillological Society has been the general forum for vexillologists in Germany since its founding in 1995. Its journal "Der Flaggenkurier" led the way in making colour part of its vexillological publications.
More than 100 individual members, companies, and associations participate in all fields of vexillological collecting and research.
