Svenska Flaggans Dag!

It's time to celebrate Sweden's 1523 throwing off of the yoke of Danish tyranny! It's Sweden's National Day, which was known until 1983 -- and still is widely thought of, I'm led to believe -- as Swedish Flag Day.

The handsome Swedish flag has its roots as far back as the 12th Century -- it's old enough that some of the details are lost to history -- but the exact current design was only made official in 1906.
