Meeting flag description: The flag incorporates symbols to indicate both the meeting’s venue, Salem, Massachusetts, and its number, 13. Salem is famous for its 17th century “witch trials,” which the flying black witch, fimbriated white, represents. The colors of orange and black are the traditional colors of Halloween, the holiday associated with witches. The 13 stripes, seven black and six orange, complete the design and signify the number of the annual meeting.
