The “European Flagwaving Archive” is a digital project produced by flagwavers and flagwaving-enthusiasts with the aim of archiving flagwaving sequences and information about flagwaving or flag throwing.
We focus on flagwaving movements and the material required for this. Heraldry and flag inscriptions are not included in the archive.
Flagwaving sequences/Choreography are archived as videos and/or written descriptions.
In addition, we also try to collect as much published material related to flagwaving as possible. We focus specifically on flagwaving in Europe.
More information can be find in our manifest.
The first rough version of the website is ready. We hope and intend to develop it and add more features, but to do this we need it to be live with actual information recorded on it. This means we want your contribution!
On the following topics: Keywords:
- We need keywords to separate the archive into categories and make it easier to access.
- Videos and descriptions: We need both video material and written descriptions, especially where video material is not available..
- The musical accompaniment – a soundtrack for videos and for written descriptions, the names of accompanying tunes or sheet music and what instruments were used
- Flag Style & Material: In addition to the flagwaving sequence, we also want to record details of equipment and material, particularly both the sticks and flags.
