raven-9-10_American City Flags: 150 Flags from Akron to YonkersAmerican City Flags by John M. Purcell with James A. Croft and Rich Monahan
Raven volumes 9/10 (2002 and 2003)

Raven 9/10, covering 2002 and 2003, appears as a special double issue, American City Flags. This milestone vexillological work contains 150 articles dedicated to descriptions and histories of municipal flags of the United States. The cities represented include the largest 100 cities in the country, at least two cities per state, and all state capitals.

This double volume parallels the landmark 1996-1997 double issue Flags of the Native Peoples of the United States. Dr. Purcell was awarded the coveted Vexillon by the Fédération internationale des associations veillologiques in 2005 for the most important contribution to world vexillology in the previous two years. The companion volume Canadian City Flags was published in 2012.

With 400 text pages, grayscale illustrations throughout, and 16 color plates, the softcover book represents the culmination of 40 years of research by John Purcell.

A wonderful panoply of civic symbolism…this book tells the story of our nation’s city flags in an engaging style backed by sound scholarship…the first such effort since 1915.Dr. Whitney Smith, Executive Director of the Flag Research Center.

RRFCoverRussian Regional Flags, by Anne M. Platoff
Raven volume 16 (2009)

For the first time since the breakup of the Soviet Union, the flags of all federal subjects of Russia—Republics, Oblasts, Krais, and more—are documented in one volume in English. Based on a paper which won the Captain William Driver Award for scholarly achievement in vexillology, this book belongs on every flag-lover’s bookshelf

Its 89 articles cover current and merged federal subjects. Each article provides the description of the territory’s flag, including its proportions, year of adoption, designer(s), history, and meaning. A locator map places the territory in Russia, with grayscale illustrations of the flag and arms in each article. (81 of 83 current subjects have flags—8 more merged subjects are covered.) Thirty-two pages of full-color plates illustrate the flags and arms described in the articles in beautiful detail.

All of the federal subjects are identified in English, Russian, and transliterated Russian. An extensive analysis of the flags explores their design, colors, symbolism, and meaning.

This work was originally presented at the 42d annual meeting of the Association in 2008; the author won the Captain William Driver Award for the best paper. For this volume of Raven, she was awarded the coveted Vexillon by the Fédération internationale des associations veillologiques in 2011 for the most important contribution to world vexillology in the previous two years.

This volume is the third special issue of Raven, joining Flags of the Native Peoples of the United States (Raven 3/4) and American City Flags (Raven 9/10).
