Approved on 27 November 1987.
Jondal municipality is situated in Hordaland county.
The flag flown by the municipality of Jondal, three yellow boathooks extending diagonally upwards from the lower fly on a field of red, symbolises the importance of the boat to the community. It is not only a means of communication, but also important for the industries of the municipality. Jondal has traditions in boat building, and the skills of making wooden boats are kept in high regard. The flag of Jondal was designed by Arvid Sveen and officially approved by Royal resolution 27 November 1987.
