The Nationalsocialistisk Front (NSF) uses a blue flag with a yellow swastika (the colors being exacly those of the swedish flag) NSF is currently Swedens largest (and most talked-about) neo-nazi party. A few notes on the symbolism of this flag:
The later flag of the National Socialist Front, which was adopted some time between August 1999 and February 2003 (see dates given in two paragraphs of the FOTW page se}naz.html [Editor's note: That's this page, but it is not clear where on this page those dates are given), replaced the swastika with a large blue shield, fimbriated yellow and charged with a sword pointing upwards, superimposed over the Wasa-sheaf, all in yellow (see attached image se}nsf2.gif).
The shades of the flag colours were clearly the same as those of the national flag, as can be seen on this photo: web.archive.org/web/20071029110946/www.nsfront.info/upload/2007-05-01-Kalmar13.jpg, while this one: web.archive.org/web/20071110184505/www.nsfront.info/upload/2007-04-21-hitlermiddag1.jpg shows that the same was true for the previous flag, whose copies hoisted indoor were obviously kept there even after the flag change.
The size of shield can be compared with the flag width from the following photos: web.archive.org/web/20071011090712/www.nsfront.info/upload/kebnekaise19.jpg, web.archive.org/web/20071107212106/www.nsfront.info/upload/kebnekaise20.jpg, web.archive.org/web/20071031020709/www.nsfront.info/upload/2006-06-06-sthml-nsf4.jpg. Some important details of the shield are shown here: web.archive.org/web/20071031020655/www.nsfront.info/upload/2006-06-06-sthml-nsf2.jpg, web.archive.org/web/20071110184633/www.nsfront.info/upload/2007-04-21-hitlermiddag6.jpg, web.archive.org/web/20071022122905/www.nsfront.info/upload/2007-07-07-zundel-arleskog.jpg, http://web.archive.org/web/20071029112050/www.nsfront.info/upload/2006-06-06-sthml-nsf8.jpg and the stand-alone emblem (used on the clothes) can be seen here: web.archive.org/web/20071022122815/www.nsfront.info/upload/2007-07-07-zundel-gunther.jpg.
According to Wikipedia, the National Socialist Front was dissolved in 2008. At the same time, its former members founded a new party with different symbols.

Nazism Exposed | Flags and Symbols (Pål's site) is in error regarding this flag:
The symbol in this flag is not the Aryan Nations
shield but a sword and the werewolf symbol.
The sword should be pointing up not down. The symbol should not be placed in a
circle. The background colour should be red, not blue.
Their new (?) logo is a hand holding a torch with a swedish
pattern in the flame.

Nordiska Rikspartiet (NRP) is a Swedish
neo-naziparty and I've seen a white flag with a suncross
in black (?) centered on the flag in photos of their demonstrations.

Nordiska Rikspartiet has a blood red flag with a black sun cross.
I'm a member of Nordiska Rikspartiet since 1988. The
flag you have currently on your page, the sunwheel with swords, is a Norwegian
symbol. One other party, Nationalsocialistisk Front, that you have the flag
for on your page, has changed their symbol. They don't use the swastika any
more. Now they use the "Wasa-symbol" seen on this pic: here.
