Flag of Sweden (GIF)

The flag of Sweden (Swedish: Sveriges flagga) is a simple yet striking design consisting of a blue field with a yellow or gold Scandinavian cross that extends to the edges of the flag. The blue color symbolizes the clear skies and numerous lakes that dot the Swedish landscape, as well as the importance of vigilance and truth. The golden or yellow cross represents the historical and cultural ties of Sweden to the other Nordic countries and their shared Christian heritage. This flag design has been associated with Sweden since the late 16th century and continues to be a strong symbol of the nation's identity, history, and values, both in Sweden and within the larger Nordic region.

The great coat of arms of Sweden on a waving white flag
The coat of arms of Sweden is a highly ornate and symbolic emblem. It features a blue shield adorned with three golden crowns. The three golden crowns are associated with the historical Three Crowns, which have been linked to Sweden since the medieval period. They represent the three constituent parts of the Kingdom of Sweden at that time: Sweden, Norway, and Scania. The shield is surrounded by an elaborate mantle and crowned with a royal crown, signifying the monarchy. On each side of the shield are supporters, which are crowned lions standing on a pedestal. The coat of arms is a grand and regal representation of Sweden's history, monarchy, and dedication to its people and homeland.
