Description of the flag

The blue-white flag was proposed in 1972, unknown by whom. The proportions are 11:18 (4-3-4 : 5-3-10). Blue and white are for the sea and snow, blue also for the connection with Sweden. Many people in the region speak Swedish as their first language.
Jan Oskar Engene, 7 March 1996
