The Flag

The man in the Stockholm arms should be St. Erik (patron saint of Sweden) but when the city wanted to standardize the arms in the 1930's, the artist used a statue in an old church as a model, a statue that later on has been identified as St. Olof (patron saint of Norway - though very appreciated in Sweden too in the catholic era).

Flag of Stockholm is already reported, but this is probalby old design. (Am I right?)
