 Gotland, unofficial flags and flag proposals (Sweden)
A flag consisting of a red field with an old seal in white in the centre was launched in protest against the commune of Gotland which had replaced the seal it previously used as a logo.
The flag is inspired by that of the neighbouring island Öland, with the colours reversed so that the proposed flag of Gotland is yellow with a green cross.
The official flag of Gotland is used to represent the island.

 Scanian cross flag (Sweden)   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-22)
The official flag of the province of Scania is still the same, i.e.
Neither is there any evidence of arms or flags with a yellow (golden) cross on red used by the archbishop of Lund, nor for the use of such a flag to symbolize the region of Scania before 1900.
We may safely conclude that the Scanian flag is a modern invention of the last century, based on the Nordic tradition of flag design, and with colours reminiscent both of Denmark and Sweden well chosen in view of the region's history.

 Sweden - Flag - Introduction - Background
A military power during the 17th century, Sweden has not participated in any war in almost two centuries.
Sweden's long-successful economic formula of a capitalist system interlarded with substantial welfare elements was challenged in the 1990s by high unemployment and in 2000-02 by the global economic downturn, but fiscal discipline over the past several years has allowed the country to weather economic vagaries.
Indecision over the country's role in the political and economic integration of Europe delayed Sweden's entry into the EU until 1995, and waived the introduction of the euro in 1999.
