The flag of Sweden is a Scandinavian cross that extends to the edges of the flag. The design and colors of the Swedish flag are believed to have been inspired by the present Coat of arms of Sweden of 1442, which is blue divided quarterly by a cross pattée of gold.

This pattern is worked horizontally starting from the middle and doing top and bottom parts separately. Also note that the starting chain is counted as row 1.
