Following the race-based shootings inCharleston, South Carolina, publicopinion moved swiftly towardremoving the flag from public displays and from merchant shelves.“Few emblems in Americanhistory have provoked strongerpassions than the battle flag ofthe vanquished Confederacy.To some it symbolizes honor andindependence; to others, hatredand slavery”, says Tony Horwitz,in Confederates in the Attic (1998).Usually only an occasional interviewguest discussing flag topics in localand national media, for two weeksI found myself speaking daily—toSlate, NPR, National Geographic,CNN, PBS, Georgia Public Radio,KXL Radio (in Portland)—providing history, background, andperspective on the controversy.We are not going to allowthis symbol to divide usany longer.—South Carolina GovernorNikki HaleyIronically, the work for which Imay be best known, the flag-designguidebook Good Flag, Bad Flag,quotes the National Flag Committee of the Confederate States ofAmerica in describing what makesa successful flag design.Top-name retailers, flag manufacturers, and flag dealers tripped overthemselves to stop selling or making the flags—although Huntsville’s Alabama Flag & Bannerramped up production and sales!Here in Portland, The Oregoniandescribed how Dave Anchel, PFAmember and owner of Elmer’s Flag& Banner, consulted his staff andhis conscience, and decided toremove the flag from display, onlyoffering it for sale from behind thecounter. Regardless, his entirestock sold out the next day.In likely the most newsworthy aspect of the controversy, the battleflag came down from the Confederate Soldiers monument on theSouth Carolina statehouse grounds.Prediction: Mississippi’s state flagwill be the next target for change.For more information, consultThe Confederate Battle Flag, America’sMost Embattled Emblem by John M.Coski (2005). It provides a stronghistory of the flag and its evolvinguse from 1861 to the present.If you wish to compliment the editor, or to contribute in the future, contact Ted Kayeat 503-223-4660 or kandsons@aol.com.

4The Vexilloid TabloidFlags of the Rose Festival FleetBy Scott MainwaringEvery June, Portland’s Rose Festival welcomes “the fleet” from theUS and Canada. Moored along theWillamette river, the ships display acolorful range of flags to see—ensigns, jacks, signal flags, andcourtesy flags.The maritime signal flag “K”, thePOW-MIA flag, and the Portland cityflag fly on the USCGC Waesche.A large Maple Leaf Flag, along withmany smaller flags, flies from the sailing ketch HMCS Oriole, a CanadianNavy sail training vessel (launched in1921, she is the oldest commissionedship in the Royal Canadian Navy).The Canadian Naval Ensign flies fromthe frigate HMCS Calgary (FFH 335).The Union Jack of the United Statesflies from the bow of USCGC Waesche(WMSL-751), a National SecurityCutter.

The aspect ratio of 1:1 isAugust 2015the closest a rectangle can come tothe circular shape of the (dwarf)planet; and distinguishes it fromstandard terrestrial flags.The “heart” of Pluto from 476,000miles.

6The Vexilloid TabloidThe Cascadian Nautical FlagBy Alexander BaretichCascadia is a bioregion roughly encompassing Oregon, Washington,British Columbia and parts ofother states and provinces in theU.S. and Canada’s Pacific Northwest (see VT #36).In 2012, nearly 17 years after designing the popular Cascadianflag, I created a nautical flag forCascadia, specifically for vesselsof oceans, rivers, and the sky. The“Cascadian Wave Flag” is a tributeto the bioregion’s waters and sky.At the top of the flag, the two blueand three white waves representthe mountains and partially clearsky. Hence the white waves nextto those two top blue waves represent snowpack and clouds. Twogreen waves are the forest-coveredhills. Between the two green wavesis a single white wave that represents mist or low clouds. At thebottom of the flag, the two bluewaves represent the Pacific Oceanand the Salish Sea as well as theregion’s rivers (Columbia,Willamette, Frazer, Snake, etc.).The white waves next to the twolower blue waves represent seafoam and the crest of waves.The green isosceles triangle with itsbase against the hoist representsthe forest-clad hills and mountains.The Douglas Fir echoes the centralsymbol of the 1995 Cascadia flag.Several other flags in the PacificNorthwest have blue and whiteAugust 2015The Cascadian Nautical Flag:A tribute to the waters and sky of the bioregion.waves, including British Columbia,the Zapatopi Cascadian flag, andthe city of Vancouver, B.C.—theymay have played an unconsciouselement of my creation of Cascadian Nautical flag. It is certainlypart of our collective iconographyto represent bodies of water withblue and white waves.I intentionally made the flag extralong (longer than 1:2), although Ihave made versions in standardproportions. A longer flag maywell serve a vessel better than ashorter one.mission of exploration, research,ecology, bioregional awareness,and/or for socioeconomic andecological justice.Like the classic Cascadian flag,also known as the “Doug Flag”,I hope this flag—as well as all mydesigns—will not be used for hate,exploitation, and against the valuesor principles of bioregionalism.In seeking out a bioregional flag,I believe that it’s the bioregion thatwill capture the artist—not theartist capturing the bioregion.Three colleagues and I have justlaunched the Cascadian Flag Making Cooperative. Our general goalis to provide Cascadian flags, locally produced and “artist-certified”with our logo, the @Doug symbol.We hope to sell or offer this flagonly to owners or captains of vessels—ideally merchant vessels thatconduct fair trade as opposed to“free trade” or vessels that have aThe “@ Doug” logo of the CascadianFlag Making Cooperative.
