    Description of the flag

    Triangular pennant of the Norwegian national colours (stripes only, no cross) with the herring salat at the hoist. After just a two dozen years this flag was abandoned and the previous one was reintroduced.

    The blue stripe with hite fimbriation is jut a little bit wider then the yellow stripe. Is this correct? The same width would be more logical IMHO.

    The difference is, no doubt because the difference in the relative width of the stripes in the Norwegian and Swedish flags. So, what do we do - make the Swedish stripe smaller or Norwegian wider? (The latter, I guess might have well been practice even if the different was prescribed).
