Description of the flag

The flag, proposed in 1992, is yellow-blue- white, proportions 16:25,6.

Flagmaster No. 081 reports that this flag was "recently adopted for the region of West Sweden", encompassing the counties (läns) of Halland, Gälvsborg, Skaraborg, Värmland, Goteborgs and Bohus. This West Sweden region is an initiative organized by commercial interests, with municipal participation.
