Norway National Anthem

Norway National Anthem
Yes, we love this country (Ja, vi elsker dette landet)

Lyrics
Yes, we love with fond devotion
This our land that looms
Rugged, storm-scarred o’er the ocean
With her thousand homes.
Love her, in our love recalling
Those who gave us birth.
And old tales which night, in falling,
Brings as dreams to earth.

Norsemen whatsoe’er thy station,
Thank thy God whose power
willed and wrought the land’s salvation
In her darkest hour.
All our mothers sought with weeping
And our sires in fight,
God has fashioned in His keeping
Till we gained our right.

Yes, we love with fond devotion
This our land that looms
Rugged, storm-scarred o’er the ocean
With her thousand homes.
And, as warrior sires have made her
Wealth and fame increase,
At the call we too will aid her
Armed to guard her peace.

Flag History

Adopted in 1821, the Norway flag has red, white and blue which were influenced
by the French Tricolore- a symbol of liberty- and by the flags of the UK and USA.
The off-centered white cross on a red field is taken from the Danish flag.
