Top best answers to the question «Sweden why three crowns»

  • The crowns represent the three areas of Uppland (the area around Uppsala) that had the right to participate in the election of the king. The three crowns represent the Three Wise Men (or Holy Kings). A hypothesis that the three crowns were the arms of Sweden's patron saint King Erik (died 1160) has also been presented. King Erik is sometimes depicted together with the three crowns.
