This flag has a blue field with a yellow vertical stripe along the hoist ans a yellow inverted chevron (V-shaped stripe) covering most of the fly area of the flag. The width of the vertical stripe and each arm of the "V" is 1/6th of the flag's length. The cypher "IV" and the letters "I"and "V" represent the fact that it is the _Fourth_ Congress of _I_nternational _V_exillology. The colour of the flag, blue and yellow, represent the City of Turin, the flag of the F.I.A.V., and the host -- the Academy of San Marciano. Attached to the flag pole immediately above the flag are two blue cravats fringed in gold, carrying on one the inscription "4º Congresso Internazionale di Vessillologia" ("4th. International Congress of Vexillology"), and on the other, "Torino 24-27 guigno 1971") ("Turin 24-27 June 1971"). This flag was designed by Aldo Zigioto.
