8The Vexilloid TabloidFlags at the End of the Alaska HighwayBy Michael OreloveWhile my son Jonathon wasstaying home during the coronavirus pandemic, he was lookingat some old photos and found onewith flags which he sent to me.In 1973 we were living in Juneau,Alaska, and took a trip on theAlaska Highway.The original “End of the AlaskaHighway” is in the small town ofDelta Junction, at Milepost 1422(as measured from Milepost 0, inDawson Creek, B.C.).When the Alaska Highway wasbuilt in 1942, this is the pointwhere the new construction wasphysically linked to the existingAlaska road system.Since very few people actuallyend their Alaska Highway adventure at this isolated road junction,there’s a secondmonument atMilepost 1523,in downtownFairbanks.Jonathon istaller now.Lima QuarantineFrom reader Rob MurrayVT #81’s article on ‘quarantineflags’ contained errors on the useof the Lima and Quebec flags.The word ‘quarantine’ does notappear in the current or two priorversions of the International Code ofSignals.Today, the flag Lima cannot beexpected to be understood as anything but ‘you shouldstop instantly’, as mariners or shore stations‘looking it up’ wouldonly find that meaning. Vessels ofuncertain health status use either:1. Quebec ‘My vessel is “healthy” andI request free pratique’ or2. Quebec Quebec / Quebec repeater‘I require health clearance’Probably the second is the mostaccurate for a vessel in quarantine,but either would do.Many web posts now acceptedas ‘authoritative’ are based on anerroneous (but since corrected)Wikipedia entry. Authors readthe page (but not the footnote)and the error propagated aroundthe world at Internet speed.Even in the 1916 & 1931 editions(earlyradiohistory.us/1916sig.htm),the Lima flag did not signify‘quarantine’, but rather ‘I have orhad some dangerous, infectiousdisease on board’ not ‘I am inquarantine’.Jonathon and Michael Orelove find flags in Delta Junction, Alaska, in 1973.August 2020The International Code of Signals(USA version) can be found here:msi.nga.mil/Publications/ICOS).

Portland Flag AssociationFlags for KathleenBy Michael OreloveWhile we are all spending lotsof time at home, I wrote toKathleen’s family and askedeveryone to make a flag for her.Kathleen’s children and grandchildren all made flags. I senteveryone red, white, and blue feltand said there were no rules—Good Flag, Bad Flag did not apply.The flag could look like a flag withstripes and stars or maybe wouldjust be the essence of a flag(whatever that means). The ideawas to be creative and havefun. They did!X9

10The Vexilloid TabloidRoundupA wooden flag honors the SeattleSeahawks football team with 13stripes in team colors of blue andgreen and in the canton the famous#12 (representing the fan as the12th member of the team). It’s forsale at George Kenny’s ChainsawCarving in Allyn, Washington.By Theun OkkerseA recurring phenomenon in theNetherlands has emerged again thisyear: the national flag topped by aschool bag.A widely practiced tradition is forfamilies to put out the national flagwith their kids’ school bag above itafter they have successfully passedtheir school exams.At many houses in the countrythe flag with school bags can beenseen: Proud parents, relievedstudents!Hoisting the school bag is similarto the Dutch tradition of addingan orange pennant to the flag.When a member of the RoyalHouse (House of Orange) has abirthday an orange pennant isflown above the flag. This occursonly on land, never at sea.By Michael OreloveJuneau, Alaska, displays all thestate flags, on top of the lightpoles, along a one-mile lengthof highway in the downtownarea. The flags are 4 x 6 feet.Many Juneauites have come fromother places and seeing the flagfrom their home state flying downtown often brings fond memoriesof their former home. Touristshave also commented that theyenjoy seeing their state flag flyingover Alaska’s capital city.A group of volunteers puts up theflags each spring and take themdown each fall. I was one of thosevolunteers for about 10 years whenI lived in Juneau.Due to the rainy weather and saltwater environment the flags haveto be replaced every year. Overthe years I was able to collect myown set of the old flags for all thestates. I use the flags at some ofmy flag presentations.Celebrating successful exams inDordrecht, The Netherlands, in June.August 2020The Juneau convention center islocated at about the mid-point ofthe flag display. Two flagpoles inMichael Orelove and Mississippi.front of the convention center flythe U.S. and Alaska flags. Fromcertain vantage points some of thestate flags appear to be flying overthe U.S. flag. It just happened thatthe Mississippi flag was one of theflags that appeared to fly above theAmerican flag.In 2006, at the time I was movingfrom Juneau to Oregon, I decidedto switch the Mississippi andOregon flags in the display sothat Oregon’s flag would appearto fly over the others!I like the fact that all my state flagsflew in Juneau so I will wait a fewyears to replace my current Mississippi flag with an old new onefrom the Juneau collection.
