The Flag Locker was founded on 16 March, 2018. Originally an experiment into HTML5 Canvas, the site's founder, Bernard Flynn, never intended for it to be anything more. The original design of the site was very plain focusing on large images of flags, but not much else. After becoming increasingly frustrated with the state of online vexillogical research Bernard knew that he had found a niche in which he could meaningfully contribute to.
Within the first year the site took on many forms. Growing in depth as well as breadth at the same time resulted in many experimental layouts and designs. Each iteration brought more features to the forefront. Along the way, we came to the realization that we would need to integrate a community around the site; let's face it, there are simply too many flag designs and too much information out there for any single person to comprehensively cover. User accounts, member contributions, and establishing a tracking system for flag design contests were added to the site with the 16 March 2019 update.
Now in our third year, nearing 1000 flags of the world on the site, The Flag Locker continues to grow. We're proud of the progress the site has made thus far and look forward to the contributions the vexillogical community will bring in the future.
We want to make the Flag Locker the place to go for all things vexillology, please join us on this journey.

I wish there was a website dedicated to keeping track of flag and arms contests around the world. I can picture it in my head, but bah humbug, I don't know how to make this stuff.— Trerrysaur (@trerrysaur) February 19, 2019
