I spotted the below in rec.heraldry - it sound a little strange, but ought to be of interest to our list...

On Fri, 09 Feb 1996 23:46:18 +0800, in rec.heraldry, Paul Wilson & David King ( wrote: My novel,Vexil Excelsior, the world's first flags novel, has just been published! Soon to be reviewed in Crux Australis, the journal of the Australian flag society, the novel has already attracted favourable comment in the Australian literary magazine Blast.

The blurb reads as follows:
" Does flag reflect country or does country reflect flag? To A, B, and C, travellers from the infinite River and seekers of the country of the Ideal Flag, the question is irrelevant, for both are the same. Life can certainly be trying when signs do not just denote the world but are the world; and Vexil Excelsior, based on 'Flags', published in the collection Urban Fantasies, chronicles those trials unflaggingly, right up to the moment when colour itself threatens to spill out of the flag universe into our own."
