The 'European Flagwaving Archive' is a digital project produced by flagwavers and flagwaving-enthusiasts.


The European Flagwaving Archive aims to archive materials about flagwaving to prevent them from being lost to posterity. With materials we mean :

  • Descripyions of flags and batons (dimensions, mass, form),
  • Descriptions of series/sequences/creations
  • Flagwaving groups (only this with series/sequences/creations in the archive) and
  • Literature about the preceding subjects

The focus of the archive is on flagwaving in Europe. Heraldry and flag inscriptions are not archived.


  • We will not favour any federation, group or person. Every contributor and every group’s material will be treated with equal importance and handled in the same way.
  • Although every item is unique, the treatment of all material will be consistent and standardized to make the archive usable and avoid giving some items unequal importance. Every item has its own unique character, but our treatment of it will be completely standardized.
  • If any contributing group is dissatisfied with the treatment of their material, they may, if their objections cannot be resolved, decide to have their material removed from the archive.
  • It is the responsibility of the submitting group to ensure their material contains no breaches of copyright, whether in respect of music, drumming or visual material. If it is established that copyright has been violated, the material will be removed from the archive.
