A note about the flag of Iceland: The current flag was officially adopted in 1944. The blue symbolizes the surrounding ocean, the white symbolizes the glaciers and snow throughout the country, and the red symbolizes the volcanic fires. The cross made with the red and white markings symbolizes Iceland's adoption of Christianity as the national religion of Iceland.

Sw1tchBl4de from Deviant Art helped with the coloring, and did an AMAZING job at it. Without his help biweekly updates would not have been possible. I can't stress enough what a great artist this guy is and the level of work he put into helping me with these. You should definitely go check out his work!
