ⓘ Banner o the Faroe Islands

The banner o the Faroe Islands is an affset cross, follaein as wi ither Nordic banners the tradeetion set bi Dannebrog. The banner is cawed Merkið which means "the banner" or "the mark". It resembles the banners o neighbouring Norrowey an Iceland.

The banner wis devised in 1919 bi Jens Oliver Lisberg an ithers while thay wur studyin in Copenhagen. The first time the Merkið wis raised in the Faroe Islands wis on Juin 22 that year in Famjin on the occasion o a weddin.
