The Sámi flag

Samisk flag

The Sámi flag was first used in 1986 but not approved as an official flag until 15 August 1992. It is used by the Sámi of the Lapland region, which covers parts of northern Sweden, Norway and Finland as well as a small part of Russia. It was designed by Astrid Båhl.

The red part of the circle symbolises the sun, the blue part the moon. The colours red, blue, green and yellow reflect the Sámi national costume. Green symbolises nature, blue water, red fire and yellow the sun.
