Svalbard and Jan Mayen Flag
Svalbard, a Norwegian incorporated area, does not have its own flag. Svalbard uses the Norwegian flag, which includes a blue field with a white Scandinavian cross that extends to the flag's edges; the vertical part of the cross is relocated to the hoist side in the style of the Dannebrog, Denmark's flag.
Norway formally accepted the flag on July 17, 1821, after it was developed in 1821. The flag's colors and design have a long history in Norway and its association with Denmark, which ruled Norway for centuries before independence in 1905.
