Quality Inn Riverview, Covington, Kentucky
October 6–8, 1995
Meeting flag description: The NAVA 29 flag’s composition is derived from the design and colors of the civic flag of Cincinnati, Ohio. Cincinnati was originally chosen as the annual meeting site, but the meeting was moved across the Ohio River to Covington, Kentucky after Cincinnati voters repealed a city ordinance prohibiting discrimination based on sexual orientation. The white field represents purity, while the wavy blue lines signify the Ohio River, on which Cincinnati is located. Superimposed over the lines is a large red “V” derived from the NAVA flag, representing vexillology. The red “C’ signifies Cincinnati, as it is depicted on the civic flag.
