The Micronational Vexillological Association (MVA) was created in April, 2011 as one of the first micronational vexillological studies group. It was founded by Jerolin Aldelric based on the principles of a flag being, "simple and clean, yet having a certain symbolism and distinction among other flags. It must be easily recognizable from a distance and allocated to a certain country, place, or people."

Three Flag Groups

According to the NVA, there are three distinct groups of micronational flags: Original Flags, Historical Flags in Use, and "Bits and Pieces". Each gets their own different rankings.

  • Original Flags - flags with an original and new design that are distinct from existing flags.
  • Historical Flags - flags of past nations or areas put to new use.
  • Bits and Pieces - uses parts of existing flags or reversed versions of those existing.

Member States

Joining the MVA simply involved asking on its MicroWiki talk page, providing a picture of a nation's flag, a link to its page and an explanation of the symbolism.
