In Sweden, you're as likely to see a vimpel (vimple, wimple) flying on a flagpole, as you are a flag. A vimpel is a long, pennant-shaped flag in the colors of the national flag. When the vimpel is out, it's a sign there's probably someone at home. The vimpel is convenient, too, because it can be left out at night -- something you shouldn't do with a country flag. Vimpels are typically flown from a high flag pole, just as a flag would be. They also are seen on the top of the Swedish Midsummer pole (maypole, majstang) or on a ship's mast.
Vimple Size: 72" (24 ft.) long with the top width being 35.5" (11' 9" about).
