The flag of Sweden consists of a yellow or gold Nordic Cross (i.e. an asymmetrical horizontal cross, with the crossbar closer to the hoist than the fly, with the cross extending to the edges of the flag) on a field of light blue. The Nordic cross design traditionally represents Christianity. This flag is ideal for the low-wind area. The lightweight design allows the flag to fly in a mild breeze. However, outdoor use in super windy areas is not recommended.
