    Description of the flag

    The state flag with the herring salat in canton and three white stars in lower hoist quarter.As I have noted when dealing with the state flag, the 1844 pattern on which this one should have been modeled is shown by Engene with curious middle tongue. Either this flags followed it (not shown so by Engene) or the state flag was changed in usage to the modern look (with herring salat, of course), possibly silently. Third possibility is that the "odd 1844" is errorneus.
