Meeting flag description: The design is based on the NAVA flag. The two green triangles reflect the mountains of Oregon, while the color green symbolizes the forests. The white stripes signify the snow caps on these mountains in winter, especially famous Mount Hood. The blue is emblematic of the lakes and rivers in the state. Oregon’s nickname is the “Beaver State,” and the beaver on the flag is derived and positioned as it appears on the reverse of the state flag. Together this symbolism indicates NAVA’s 28th annual meeting site, Portland, Oregon.
