The flag of the Japanese Vexillological Association (Nihon Kishougaku Kyoukai) was selected after a flag competition conducted through FOTW. A total of 61 entries were received.

The flag was designed by Phil Nelson of Prince Frederick, Maryland. It features the Hinomaru over a red halyard along the lower fly, both on a white background. The proportions are 7:10.

The Hinomaru (sun disc) has been an emblem of Japan since the 14th century. The halyards represent the ropes used to attach flags to hoists and is an international symbol of vexillology.
