The Mouvement Normand promotes the Normand culture and asks for the 'reunification' of Normandy, currently divided in the two Regions of Lower- and Upper-Normandy.

The flag of the Mouvement Normand is red with a yellow Scandinavian cross voided and filled in red.
This flag is shown on the Flags of Aspirant Peoples chart [eba94], #67, with the following caption:
The caption is incorrect and should be Normandie for the area or Normands for the people.

While driving through Normandy on 2 January 2001, I noticed flags on the roundabouts on the ring road around Falaise which combine the usual flag of Normandy and the flag of the Mouvement Normand shown above. The Scandinavian Cross (red on gold on red) had in the canton the two lions/leopards from the banner of arms.
This flag seems to have been in use since the 1980s and flies regularly on the castle of Falaise, which is the birth place of William the Conqueror.

In the July 2000 issue of Contact Bulletin, issued by The European Bureau for Lesser Used Languages (an institution promoting minority languages), a front page photo shows flags used at a demonstration in Paris One of the flag is the flag of the Mouvement Normand with three lions in the canton.
