Flag Description
The flag of Norway has a red background with a blue 'Scandinavian cross' on it. The Scandinavian cross is outlined by white stripes. The vertical stripe of the cross isn't centered; instead it's based on the left side of the flag.
The colors of the Norwegian flag are believed to have been influenced by the flags of France, the United States and Britain and are considered the colors of liberty and independence. The cross is common to most Scandinavian flags, and represents Norway's link to the other Scandinavian countries.
