About the flag

The county of Östergötland has the same arms, and thus the same official flag, as the
province of Östergötland. The geographical borders are approximately the same.

Elias Granqvist 2000-Aug-14


Official blazon in Swedish: "I rött fält en gyllene grip med drakvinge och draksvans samt med blå draktunga och beväpning, i vart av sköldens hörn åtföljd av en ros av silver."

Blazoned in English: "Gules a Griffin with Dragon Wings, Tail and Tongue rampant Or armed, beaked, langued and membered Azure between four Roses Argent."
