Why Ukrainian flag colors are blue and yellow?

What is the history of the National Flag of Ukraine? What are the explanations of the blue and yellow colors of the Ukrainian flag? Sweden has the same color combinations of their National Flag. Are there any influences of the Battle of Poltava maybe?  Thanks for your answers!

Hi Marry. ukrainian flag has two equal size bands blue and yellow, which symbolizes a clear blue sky over the yellow wheat field. Please, check out this article about Ukrainian flag
It seems Ukrainian and Swedish flags are not related, as I’ve read somewhere that the blue and gold colors of the Flag of Sweden go back to the 13th century.
