Faroe Islands flag

The Faroe Islands' flag consists of a white background with an offset red Nordic cross fimbriated azure. The Merki, which means “the banner” or “the mark,” is its name.

The flag's design is similar to that of other Nordic countries such as Denmark, Norway, and Iceland, and it is sometimes referred to as the “Danish flag” in the Faroe Islands due to the country's status as a Danish autonomous region.

The flag's white color depicts the foam of the sea and the Faroe Islands' pristine, brilliant sky, while the red and blue colors are reminiscent of other Scandinavian and Nordic flags and indicate the Faroe Islands' relations with these countries.
