ICV 24 - International Congress of Vexillology, Day 4 - After Session Rogue Presentation?

Unknown persons with flag
North Lodge Room August 4th, 2011
Appeared around 5:30-6:00 pm EST

On the fourth day of the International Congress of Vexillology a 'rogue' unregistered flag waving event occurred at the main speaker's forum in the North Lodge room of the George Washington Masonic Memorial.

While assisting Peter Ansoff with the computer and video preparation for the final day of presentations, two unregistered persons walked to the front of the stage and raised a large world quilt flag. They did not speak but let their flag do the speaking - it heralded along the top"Jesus King of the Nations." This was apparently make by ''. Unseen in the video is the message along the bottom that states "Every Tongue Will Confess."

I was lucky enough to get a snap shot of these unknown unregistered, 'rogue vexillologists' caught in the act. This is perhaps the first time that unregistered persons made a flag statement at a ICV congress, on the speakers forum without permission.

Previously at the 23 International Congress of Vexillology, after the tour bus departed from the controversial Yasukuni Shrine three demonstrators on the edge of the shrine were waving the Tibet, Mongolian, and Uyghur flags. However the waving of these 'ethnic' groups in China was not at the speakers forum.

It's a good bet this is where they got their flag from
