The flag of the county of Blekinge is a banner of the arms of the county,
and it is the same as the flag (and arms) of (the historical province) Blekinge. The borders of the landskap (province) and
the län (county) are approximately the same.

Azure, an Oak Tree eradicated Or ensigned with three Crowns palewise of the
English blazon by Željko Heimer, 30 September 2000
"Eradicated" is the blazon that roots of a tree are visible.
Željko Heimer, 07 October 2000
In Swedish heraldry, a tree is always supposed to be eradicated (with its
roots showing) unless otherwise stated in the blazon. Therefore, there is no
word in the official Swedish blazon for the arms of Blekinge corresponding to
the word eradicated.
