The flag of Malta is a basic bi-color, with white in the hoist and red in the fly. A representation of the George Cross, awarded to Malta by George VI of the United Kingdom in 1942, is carried, edged with red, in the canton of the white stripe.

The red outline of the cross is not possible to show in this size. But to make the cross pop out a bit more and give it a sense of detail, use darker gray (or black) to crochet the central part of the cross.

This pattern is worked vertically starting from bottom left.
