Country-specific Django helpers for Sweden.

branch: master


Country-specific Django helpers for Sweden.


This app has been superseded by the newly created django-localflavor app which recombines all the different country locaflavors again (after having been removed from Django). Development and maintenance of this app has stopped and is only left online as a reminder for the users of those apps. It will be removed after grace period of 1 Django release (~spring 2014).

What's in the Sweden localflavor?

  • forms.SECountySelect: A Select form widget that uses a list of the Swedish counties (län) as its choices. The cleaned value is the official county code -- see for a list.

  • forms.SEOrganisationNumber: A form field that validates input as a Swedish organisation number (organisationsnummer).

    It accepts the same input as SEPersonalIdentityField (for sole proprietorships (enskild firma). However, co-ordination numbers are not accepted.

    It also accepts ordinary Swedish organisation numbers with the format NNNNNNNNNN.

    The return value will be YYYYMMDDXXXX for sole proprietors, and NNNNNNNNNN for other organisations.

  • forms.SEPersonalIdentityNumber: A form field that validates input as a Swedish personal identity number (personnummer).


    A + indicates that the person is older than 100 years, which will be taken into consideration when the date is validated.

    The checksum will be calculated and checked. The birth date is checked to be a valid date.

    By default, co-ordination numbers (samordningsnummer) will be accepted. To only allow real personal identity numbers, pass the keyword argument coordination_number=False to the constructor.

    The cleaned value will always have the format YYYYMMDDXXXX.

  • forms.SEPostalCodeField: A form field that validates input as a Swedish postal code (postnummer). Valid codes consist of five digits (XXXXX). The number can optionally be formatted with a space after the third digit (XXX XX). The cleaned value will never contain the space.

See the source code for full details.

About localflavors

Django's "localflavor" packages offer additional functionality for particular countries or cultures.

For example, these might include form fields for your country's postal codes, phone number formats or government ID numbers.

This code used to live in Django proper -- in django.contrib.localflavor -- but was separated into standalone packages in Django 1.5 to keep the framework's core clean.
