The The Union Internationale de Speleologie (UIS) invites the speleoartists of the world to submit designs for a new flag to be raised during the International Congress of Speleology to be held in Kerrville, Texas USA 2009. This flag is to be presented at the end of each International Congress of Speleology to the next hosting country to raise during their week of Congress events.
Judging will shortlist 6 entries between February 14 and March 1, 2007. The flag design requested should present the UIS symbol. See the UIS symbol and entry details here: www.caves.org/speleoart/UIS%20Form.html
Six flags will be made from the designs and displayed at the 2007 NSS Convention being held in Marengo, Indiana.
The final judging will be carried out at the UIS Bureau meeting, to be held at the FEALC Congress in Puerto Rico directly following the 2007 NSS Convention.
The award for the winning flag design will be presented by the UIS Bureau at the 2009 International Congress of Speleology held in Kerrville, Texas.
