Description 2007 Flag of Orkney
My own vector of the official flag of the Isles of Orkney, Scotland, created using Inkscape. This version is based upon the official version designed by Duncan Tullock of Birsay and voted for by the people of Orkney and approved by the Court of the Lord Lyon in 2007 from a short list of 5 designs. It is a Nordic Cross, in keeping with the flag's unofficial predecesor the Cross of St Magnus, and for which, according to Mr Tullock, "Orkney has always been represented by red, so that was an obvious choice. The yellow symbolizes the royal standards of both Scotland and Norway and blue is for Scotland, and also for the sea that surrounds us".
