for journalists and communications professionals. It is located in Washington,
D.C. Its membership consists of journalists, former journalists, government
information officers, and those considered to be regular news sources. Its first
meeting was held on March 12, 1908"

Its flag is a navy blue horizontal flag with the logo (http://s1.evcdn.com/images/edpborder500/I0-001/000/276/084-0.jpg_/national-press-club-84.jpg) in yellow and blue, as seen here: (source: Twitter account of the Italian Embassy in the United States @ItalyinUS (https://twitter.com/italyinus).
