The North American Vexillological Association Flag and Seal Committee, consisting of Gary Grahl, Tom Hill, and Linda Stock, chose the design submitted by Harry F. Manogg of Kankakee, Illinois, from among several entered in an open flag contest in 1967.

NAVA's flag is composed of three triangles separated by a white inverted chevron. The hoist and fly right triangles are red and the isosceles triangle between the arms of the chevron is dark blue. The shades of red and blue correspond to numbers 70180 and 70075 of the Standard Color Card of America (9th edition, 2nd issue). The relation of width to length of the flag is 2:3.

The hypotenuses of the red triangles correspond to lines drawn respectively from the upper hoist and upper fly corners of the flag to the center point of the lower edge of the flag and form the outer edges of the chevron. The base of the blue triangle is as long as the flag is wide and its legs, forming the inner lines of the chevron, are drawn parallel to the hypotenuses of the red triangles.

The colors are found in the flags of the United States of America and Canada. The white "V" (and "inverted chevronel", in heraldic terms) stands for "Vexillology."

Neither the NAVA Flag or the NAVA Seal may be used for commercial or personal purposes.
