The flag's dimensions are not fixed, and may vary from 9:14 cm to 8:12 m. The flag is not only used by cultural associations or autonomists but by everyone in general. For years, the authorities considered the flag as a separatist symbol, but the attitude has now changed and the flag, no longer having any political connotations, can appear everywhere, even on public buildings along with the other official flags. It is widely used throughout Brittany and can even be seen ontown halls in the region. Because of the absence of legislation concerning regional flags in France the flag is also flown on sail- and fishing boats. The design of the ermine spots can vary but the version most frequently seen is shown above.
