Cross Flags

Cross flags have been flown on a variety of flags over the years and one thing to note is that there are several styles of crosses. For example, the Greek Cross as see in Diagram 1.1, is used on the flag of Switzerland, the Symmetric Cross as seen in Diagram 1.2 can be seen on the flag of England and finally the Scandinavian cross as seen in Diagram 1.3 can be seen on the flag of Finland.
