Overview

I have started with a presentation of Norwegian municipal flags. I have about 300 drawings that introduced the group. A small part of the flag is drawn from photographs, while a larger number of flags drawn according to the instructions from this site. How I have noticed that there is no data on the dimensions of the flag so I suppose that those of the municipal flag and are not so important. Mostly, I draw in the dimensions of 8:11 or 1:1 depending what my aesthetic look nicer. I also noticed that is used white flag emblem no matter what exists prescribed appearance of the flag. However I have not found anything about flags of Molde, Skien, Porsgrunn, Kristainsand and some smaller municipalities. If anyone has any information is welcome.

From what I remember, the Norwegian municipal flags, with some notable exceptions, are not defined any further then being banner of arms. Their ratio is thus irrelevant, and what we find as ratio given is mostly what was reported in use or some other source, but it should not mean that other ratios are not possible.  White flags with emblems are certainly in use somewhere, but they are against what is  prescribed (or suggested by central authorities), of course...
For what I am aware, many municipalities do not use their flags at all, although this may have changed in recent times. In theory any heraldic COA flag that was officially granted may be useed in banner of arms form as the municipal flag. Only municipal authorities are alowed to use their respective flag.
Well, so much from memory and in limited time.
