SWEDISH NATIONAL DAY

Swedish flag’s history
From three-tailed flag on warships and sillsallater to having your very own day. The Swedish flag’s appearance and role has changed over time and it was not until the year 1906 – ie, after the dissolution of the union in 1905 – as the Swedish flag became the national symbol we know today.

The Swedish flag dates from the 1550s , that is, from the end of Gustav Vasa . Specimen was believed the Danish red and white korsbanéret , Dannebrog . The colors were taken from lesser coat of arms with its three golden crowns on blue field . A character in the 1400s often been used as field signs for Swedish squad, both on land and at sea.

The flag was used primarily by the king and his armed forces, primarily the Navy. From Gustavus Adolphus – 1620s – there is picture proof that blue and yellow cross flags out on Swedish ships. The flags were either cross cut or fitted with tongues.
