ⓘ Banner o Iceland

The Banner o Iceland wis offeecially describit in Law No. 34, set oot on 17 Juin 1944, the day Iceland became a republic. The law is entitled "The Law o the Naitional Banner o Icelanders an the State Airms" an describes the Icelandic banner as follaes:

The ceevil naitional flag o Icelanders is blue as the sky wi a snaw-white cross, an a fiery-red cross inside the white cross. The airms o the cross extend tae the edge o the flag, an their combined width is 2/9, but the red cross 1/9 o the combined width o the flag. The blue auries are richt angled rectangles, the rectilinear surfaces are parallel an the ooter rectilinear surfaces as wide as them, but twice the length. The dimensions atween the width an length are 18:25.

Icelands first naitional banner wis a white cross on a deep blue backgrund. It wis first shawn in parade in 1897. The modren banner dates frae 1915, when a reid cross wis insertit intae the white cross o the oreeginal banner. This cross represents Christianity. It wis adoptit in 1918 an became the naitional banner when Iceland gained unthirldom frae Denmark in 1944. For the Icelandic fowk the banners colourin represents a vision o thair kintras landscape. The colours staund for 3 o the elements that mak up the island. Red is the fire produced bi the islands volcanoes, white recaws the ice an snaw that covers Iceland, an blue for the Atlantic Ocean.
