Divided per saltire, white on top and bottom and blue at hoist and fly, with a white oval in the centre, bordered blue and charged with a blue snake (with a huge head, and an even bigger eye, in relative terms).
Jorge Candeias, 14 March 1999
This may be a canting flag, since Midgard is a snake in Norse mithology.

Midgard snake (Midhgardhsormr) keeps the world in place by clasping it into its rings. When the snake relaxes, a generalized flood shall occur and the world shall disappear during the so-called Ragnarok Fate-of-the-Powers, very often mispelled Ragnarokr, Twilight-of-the-Powers Midgard snake is compared to Yggdrasill, the ash tree which supports the world with its branches. When Yggdrasill collapses, the world shall disappear. Source: Encyclopaedia Universalis.
