The Roma flag

How to use the material

This post for social media is about the Roma flag and the Roma people in Sweden. The Roma are one of Sweden's five official national minorities.

You can use the post on social media to, for example, commemorate International Roma day on 8 April.

This is the flag that unites the Roma across borders.

The blue is for sky and spiritual values. Green is for earth, and the red wheel acknowledges the historical ties to India.

Roma people have lived in Sweden since at least the 16th century, but it took until 2000 for Sweden to recognise the Roma as an official minority. Today, the Roma culture and language (Romani Chib) are protected by Swedish law.

In 2012, the Swedish government launched a long-term strategy that aims to achieve equal opportunities for Roma people by 2032, with particular focus on the principle of non-discrimination.

International Roma Day commemorates the first World Romani Congress held in London on 8 April 1971, a meet that resulted in the common flag and the Romani anthem ‘Gelem, Gelem’.
