Flags for Philippe

One of the joys of the NAVA meeting was finally meeting Dr. Philippe Rault, a vexillologist from the country he refers to as "French occupied Brittany". Philippe is one of a group of Breton vexillologists who have been active in restoring or designing appropriate flags for the cities and regions of Brittany. We have corresponded by post and e-mail for many years now, and have developed a fond friendship; but only this month have we actually been in each other's company. Today, I fly the flags of the Country (pays) of Poher and the City of Rostrenen, in which Philippe and his fine family reside.
