Simon the Cannibal is a big fan of flags. Probably the biggest fan of flags in Philadelphia. Not only does he produce a podcast about the topic, the Vexillogicast (previously covered on Geekadelphia), but he also created and moderates the vexillology subreddit.
This week, fans and noobs alike can hear Simon speak at the Free Library‘s Parkway Central location. Simon will discuss the origin of flags, their future, and also their present, with a focus on the redesign movement that’s gaining traction. Milwaukee is one of several cities where the current flag just doesn’t make any sense. Simon will hold a Q&A after his lecture.
