Du gamla, Du fria! (Thou Ancient, Thou Free!)

In Swedish mythology, King Eric IX was landing on the shores of Finland leading the first Swedish Crusade. He looked up into the heavens and there he saw a golden cross against the blue sky. Seeing this as a sign from God, he immediately adapted this to his banner and has been flying it mightily for centuries after. In fact, a Royal Warrant in 1569 ordered that ALL banners and battle standards of Sweden bear the gold cross. 

We've got you covered, Sweden. Wear your colors and wear them proud!
