A fimbriated Nordic cross in the pattern of Norway but with a green field. The origin of which is unclear, possibly coming from a 2003 Western Isles proposal or from earlier internet based proposals. The design has been well established in South Uist over the last decade.

Getting the design officially recognised was championed by former councillor Donnie Steele who arranged for a petition to be signed off by the community councils on the island and then formally submitted by the community landlord Storas Uibhist. The petition was also blessed by the Western Isles council.
