Video event and competition of the Flag wawing groups in Faenza, Italy

The FlagArt Monadria brought victory in the Flag wawing competition organized in the Faenza on the 26th Sept. 2020.

We would like to share this very important success in the FlagArt Monadria history. Let us go back to the beginning of our Flag waving way. Means app. 15 years ago when one of our wishes was to participate on any Italian flag waving event. This our wish was fulfilled in the 2016 when we were invited to the international event in Cory nearby Roma. But we never hoped to participate any flag waving competition. Therefore it was really big surprise for us to get invitation from Faenza to participate on the international flag waving competition. There was one condtion. The age of participants had to be over 40. By the reason of Covid restricitons the organizers made a decision to do remote video competition. So, we sent videos of our two shows.

FlagArt Monadria organized the first workshop for the Janáček Academy of Music and Performing Arts in Brno

The workshop focused on the flag waving and throwing arts took place during weekend 19th and 20th September 2020 in Brno for students of the Janáček Academy of Music and Performing Arts. Two days training and teaching for several talented students interested in this noble art. The students were very skilful and succeeded to learn basic flag waving arts. It allowed us to create their first flag show that should have been performed on the 30th Sept. 2020 during JAMU parade on the Moravian square in Brno. Unfortunately the Covid restrictions forced JAMU to cancel this event completely. Anyway, the students were very happy to absolve this workshop and Monadria was proud to teach them this nice art.

General meeting

By the reason of very complicated pandemic situation in 2020 we were forced to cancel the ECF Annual General Meeting to be postponed to 2021. As the pandemic situation was very similar in 2021 and the international personal meeting was not again allowed we decided to organize this event as on-line meeting. The on-line ECF Annual General Meeting passed on the 25th April 2021 at 10 AM.
