The flag of Norway (Norwegian [Bokmål]: Norges flagg; Norwegian [Nynorsk]: Noregs flagg) features a simple yet iconic design. It consists of a red field with an indigo-blue Scandinavian cross outlined in white that extends to the edges of the flag. The three colors overall are associated with freedom. The red background represents Norway's deep historical ties to its Viking heritage and its enduring spirit, while the cross and color blue are a symbol of Christianity and Norway's strong connection to the sea and its maritime traditions. The white border around the cross emphasizes the cross's prominence and adds an element of purity. This flag, often referred to as the "Nordic Cross Flag," reflects Norway's national identity, its history, and its strong maritime culture.
