Österlens Blooming Canola Fields

Here’s a few short clips of the magnificent yellow canola fields from Österlen in eastern Skåne. This time of year, when the skies are blue, you can totally see where the colors of the Swedish flag come from.

Though the yellow cross against a blue background on the Swedish flag is from when the country was christened in the mid-12th century, there is no doubt in my mind where from the colors emanated.
