The design of the flag has been discovered to be in use as early as the 1520s. The Swedish Flag Day is June 6, the anniversary of King Gustav I Vasa's reign's beginning.

During the union with Norway, the Sweden flag was a part of the Norway flag, seen as a smaller flag in the lower right square of the flag. It was however removed immediately after the breakup of the union in 1905.
