    Norwegian Flag

    by Ken_Weaver Updated May 1, 2003

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Fondest memory: I could not find any information as to the significance of the design or colors, except that it was designed in such as a way as not to be that similar to the Danish Flag. Denmark ruled Norway for a number of years and the designers of the Norsk flag wanted to be sure that their sovereignty was recognized!

    Old Bergen

    Favorite thing: Bergen was founded about the year 1070 by King Olav Kyrre. It is today the capital of the west and Norways second largest city.
