Sweden's flag was adopted in 1906, although blue and yellow have been used as Swedish colors since at least 1275. This flag features the Scandinavian cross, a symbol of Christianity used on many Scandinavian flags. One myth says that 12th century Swedish King Eric the Holy adopted this flag after seeing a golden cross in the sky as he landed on Finland during the First Swedish Crusade in 1157.
