Higher meson resonances are investigated in simple dynamical models based on the SU(3) symmetry with and without recourse to the A-conservation rule. The present models consider the vector-pseudoscalar systems as their main configurations. The predicted level schemes are rather sensitively dependent on the tri-linear self-coupling of the octuplet vector mesons. One of the main results is that there should exist a low-lying 1+ singlet and a 1+ octuplet probably above it. The existing higher meson resonances are tentatively assigned to the levels predicted here.
