Norway flag

Norway's national flag, usually known as the Norwegian flag, is a crimson flag with a navy blue Scandinavian cross fimbriated in white that reaches to the flag's edges. The vertical section of the cross is shifted towards the hoist side of the flag, creating the “Dannebrog” cross, which is similar to the Danish flag.

The red color of the flag is thought to reflect the country's bravery and strength, while the blue and white colors of the cross symbolise its unity and Christian loyalty. The flag has been formally in use since 1821 and is regarded as an essential emblem of Norwegian identity.
