Flag Project

In May 2019 our flag project has started.

It is a top priority of the Foundation Board and the Museum management to ensure that the textiles are stored in a way that is as professional as possible in terms of conservation. The flag project will improve the situation for the almost 200 flags in the long term.

The inventory was inspected, assessed and recorded by a textile conservator in 2019. For the planned installation of the custom-made flag cabinets, unexpected structural arrangements had to be made in autumn, which resulted in an additional major financial burden. The flag cabinets were finally installed in June 2020.
