Fun Flag for Element 69 - The Thulium Flag

Thule is a place somewhere in Scandinavia.  Its exact location is a mystery, but many places assign Thule to Norway, Iceland, and even Greenland.  Consequently a mixed up Scandinavian flag symbolizes this element.  Thulium was discovered by a Swedish scientist, consequently its easy to see elements of the Swedish flag in the fun Thulium flag.

Since the atomic Z number is 69 the Yin and Yang atomic symbol is appropriate, it uses the colours of Greenland, which are white and red.
