Nordic Cross flags

Flags for the Nordic countries using crosses, usually Scandinavian cross.
Nordiska flaggor

Skandinavisk: Nordisk Korsflagg eller Skandinaviskt Kors kallas en typ av flagg där de vertikala armarna ligger till "vänster" om flaggets mitt, det vill säga närmare flaggstången. Alla länder i har denna typ av flagg og dessutom finns flaggor för Åland og, samt ett flertal andra mer eller mindre officiella regionala flaggor, till exempel för og. Även bland annat og Orkneyøerne har nordiska korsflaggor. Sättet att markera kulturell eller geografisk samhørighet genom liknande flaggor färekommer även på andra håll i världen, till exempel är många av arabstaternas flaggor i färgerna grønt, vitt och svart. Ett annat exempel är de flaggor i vitt og blått som används av de länder som tidigare ingick i det Centralamerikanska federationen.

English: Nordic Cross Flag, Nordic Cross, Scandinavian Cross is a pattern of flags usually associated with the flags of the Scandinavian countries of which it originated. All the Nordic countries have adopted such flags. The cross design symbolises Christianity and is depicted extending to the edges of the flag with the vertical part of the cross shifted to the hoist side as opposed to flags where the cross is centred on the flag (known as a Greek cross).
