Sweden Flag

The explanation for the symbols of the Swedish Flag

The flag of Sweden was adopted in 1906. It consists of a gold Scandinavian cross on blue background (azur). It takes its origins in the medium and large arms that Sweden used in the fifteenth century. They then represented all kinds of royal symbols (royal crown, medal of the Royal Order of the Seraphim, golden lions...). These symbols were placed on a blue background and a gold cross separated the cantons of shield. It especially represents a heraldic symbol very present on Northern Europe’s flags : Scandinavian cross. This represents Christianity, and comes from Valdemar the Victorious. In 1219, during the Battle of Reval (now Tallinn, capital of Estonia), it is said that the Dannebrog (white cross on red background) appeared in the eyes of the latter, which was taken as a sign God to slaughter his estonian opponents. Another version relates that after the battle, all his clothes were stained with blood, leaving only a trace of his belt and shoulder harness, and then a white cross on a red background. This symbol, taken ton complete Denmark's flag, then spread to all neighboring countries.
