I'm just glad that Sweden avoided sparking a conflict with Switzerland by declaring Helvetica the Swedish National Font!
A Strategy Boutique tasked by the Swedish government to come up with a new brand identity for the land of Abba and surströmming has spunked God alone knows how much wonga to create a "global brand identity" comprising the country's flag and the word "Sverige". The new Swedish brand frontage - with flag and shiny new font …
We could do with some words superimposed on our flag, even if it is just THIS WAY UP. Bloody annoys me when I see it upside down, not quite sure why (probably growing up in the bosom of the British Army of the Rhine).

Söderhavet (the Southern Ocean) is clearly thus named because that's where the "creatives" who own the company want to retire to, in order to live on a nice tropical beach while necking Mai Tais.
