Iceland's national flag is a horizontal tricolor with a white cross on a blue background and a red cross inside the white cross. This design dates back to 1915, when it was approved as the Icelandic national flag following Denmark's grant of statehood in 1918.
The colors of the flag represent the country's natural landscape, with red representing the volcanoes' fire, white representing the ice and snow that covers the island, and blue representing the mountains. The cross represents Christianity, which has long been a component of Icelandic society. The flag was formally defined in Law No. 34, which was enacted on June 17, 1944, the day Iceland became a republic.
