About the flag

The flag of the county of Blekinge is a banner of the arms of the county, and it is the same as the flag (and arms) of (the historical province) Blekinge. The borders of the landskap (province) and the län (county) are approximately the same.

Official blazon in Swedish: "I blått fält en ek med tre kronor uppträdda på stammen, allt av guld."

Blazoned in English: "Azure, an Oak Tree eradicated Or ensigned with three Crowns palewise of the same."

English blazon by Zeljko Heimer, 2000-Sep-30

"Eradicated" is the way of telling in a blazon that roots of a tree are visible.

Zeljko Heimer, 2000-Oct-07

In Swedish heraldry, a tree is always supposed to be eradicated (with its roots showing) unless otherwise stated in the blazon. Therefore, there is no word in the official Swedish blazon for the arms of Blekinge corresponding to the word eradicated.
