Flag of Vale
The flag of Vale is an offset cross, which represents Christianity, and the design was subsequently adopted by the other Nordic countries; the Baltic Commonwealth, Iceland, as well as the Scottish archipelagos of Shetland and Orkney. The flag is called Croisé, which means "the crossed" or "the Knight of the Cross".
Description and symbolism
The design of the flag incorporates a green Nordic cross, which is offset to the left. The green cross is fimbrated azure and is set on a white field. The flag ratio is usually 2:3.
White symbolises the creators of the flag, the foam of the sea and the pure, radiant sky of Vale, while the old Valois blue and green colours represent the sea and forest of Vale, respectively.
