It's based on the Åland flag, but with the green colour added (inspired by the Sapmi flag) to symbolize the mainland west of the Åland islands, where the region is located. And also because I just happen to like green. It can be found here.
Uppland is one of the regions without a local flag, but I'd say use a simpler color scheme.
Hmm, what about this one? Only three colours this time.

The problem with that flag is that it's simple to the point of not being distinctive anymore.
I would say its simplicity embodies its distinctiveness.

The flags of the four states of Micronesia - Chuuk,, Kosrae, Pohnpei and Yap are quite nice:

I can't help but think that the last one is a baby carriage [:P]

A baby carriage - isn't that an excellent choice for a flag?

But since it's Yap, they should of course have a rai stone.

Apparently, the thing on the Yapese flag is supposed to be a stylised indigenous boat carrying a rai stone.
