The flag of Norway, known as the “Nordic Cross Flag,” consists of a red field with a blue cross outlined in white that extends to the edges of the flag. The vertical part of the cross shifts to the hoist side. Its design, dating back to the 13th century, is considered one of the oldest national flags still in use. The red color symbolizes Norway’s sovereignty, independence, and historic ties to its past. The blue cross represents Norway’s connection to the sea and its maritime heritage.
It also signifies the importance of Christianity in the country’s history and culture within the country.
