The Sami flag

The Sami flag has been used since 1986 but was only approved at the official flag on 15 August 1992. The Sami flag is used by the Sami in the Lapland region which covers parts of northern Sweden, northern Norway, northern Finland and a little bit of Russia. The flag was designed by Astrid Båhl.

The red part of the circle symbolises the sun and the blue part symbolises the moon. The colours red, blue green and yellow come from the Sami national costume. The green colour symbolises nature, the blue symbolises the water, the red symbolises fire and the yellow symbolises the sun.
