No, I knew Irina through a completely different online group, and we had arranged to meet when I was over there. Sally Caves wrote, quoting myself where indicated:

Irina responded with something in Valdyan, and commented that she wasn't able to produce spontaneous gibberish. Which is part of the reason behind my curiosity about whether other conlangers could do the same.

You'll find the flag on various websites, including mine: scroll to the bottom of the following URL and there's a section "About the Conlang Flag". <> It was a democratic process, and I facilitated the submissions and voting. I think we managed to choose a design that many people liked and nobody hated. (To be honest, I wasn't thinking of any other events; I just thought the question sounded better if I phrased it in a way that didn't sound like I was fixated on the flag...) Adrian.
