Alternate Norwegian Flags by Kurarun Alternate Norwegian Flags by Kurarun
Some alternate Norwegian flags.

At one point in time a white saltire (diagonal cross) on red was used to represent Norway. I decided to experiment with this, eventually combining it with the OTL modern Norwegian flag. It was hard to make sure the flags didn't resemble those of the Confederate States of America or that of Great Britain too much.

The first flag is a national flag, used by government agencies, civil organisations (regardless of whether they're connected to the government or not) and military organisations.

The second flag is a combined naval and state ensign, used by non-military government ships (e.g. those of the coast guard) and military ships (i.e. those of the navy).

The third flag is a civil ensign, used by privately-owned ships.

Wait, really? Was Norway's flag once a red flag with a white saltire?
Awesome flags, btw.

Thanks! :D

I don't think the white saltire on red was ever used as a flag on its own, but early in the 1800s when Norway and Sweden were in a personal union some flags showed the Swedish yellow cross on blue with Norway represented by a white saltire on red in the upper left corner.

Could you make something like the Norwegian and Swedish union badge, with the white cross of Norway and the yellow cross of Sweden, like the British Union square?

I'm not 100% sure what the flag you're describing would look like, but it sounds like it would be simple to make, yes. Heck, anyone should be able to make a flag that's just crosses - it's ridiculously easy with programs like Inkscape.
