In the early 1970's two Öland artists took the Swedish flag as their point of departure, and replaced the blue with green (for the nature of the island). The second proposal is blue-yellow-green. This was put forward in 1972 and was meant to symbolize a green island in the blue sea, with yellow as a Swedish connection.
