May 17th: Norwegian National Day – Free Printable Flag Banner

The Norwegian National Day is celebrated on May 17th. According to our tradition, we always have a children’s parade in the morning, in every city and every town all over Norway. The parade in Oslo is particularly big, and leads up the capital’s main street, Karl Johan’s Gate so the children can wave a virtual sea of Norwegian flags to greet the King and Queen and the rest of the Royal Family on the balcony of the Royal Castle.

The Oslo parade features all the schools of the capital, and the Royal Family greets them all, smilingly and patiently.

Another tradition of this day is that many Norwegians wear their traditional costumes, the Bunad. There are numerous variation of the Bunad, and the different ones are linked to different areas and regions of Norway.

For decorations, the Norwegian flag is a must! So I have designed a banner, using the flag and official portraits of the Royal Family  and the Norwegian Coat of Arms. This banner is not vintage, but I would still like to share my printable with you, I know there are many proud Norwegians all of the world, celebrating this day!
