Today's Flowers; Norway in Red, White and Blue!



Since 17th of May is Norway's national day, I have chosen our flags colours for my entry today!

According to the song: "Norway in red, white and blue", the colour red symbolize the red in our sunsets....

The white symbolize the snow...

And the blue symbolize the blue in our glaciers!

I don't have photos of glaciers - so this shot has to symbolize both snow and glacier!

AND - Norway won the European Song contest! YEAH!

Happy 17th of May!




Please visit TODAY'S FlOWERS and see more wonderful photos of flowers!

Hurra!! jeadette er dagen til å bli glad i. Vi har vært velsignet med så flott et vær i trøndelag denne dagen at det er helt utrolig.

At fargene i flagget vårt sto for disse symboler, ja det var nytt for meg helt til nå det gitt. Over 40 og ennå ikke for sent å lære..., så bra!!

Ha nå også en toppers kveld, og utrolig stilig et innlegg da. Dette er norgesreklame på sitt beste .-)

Now you as a nation have more than one reason to celebrate!
Well done, Norway!
Warm congratulations!
Hmm, since the Finnish flag is white and blue, we are missing the sunsets (though... no, we're not).
Have a joyful week!

I think that blue flower (is it a tulip?) has managed to include every possible shade of blue in its petals! It's lovely.

Congrats on the song contest win! What a lovely way to celebrate your country, with flowers. Blue flowers are always wonderful, and I have a soft spot for a well-done photo of a white flower. Love the chill of the icy winter contrasting photos.

Ett stort grattis till songfestival vinnarna.
Den blåa tulpanen är så väldigt vacker och fick mig att gråta igen. Men så mycket får mig att gråta just nu. Tack i alla fall för just den tulpanen.

Vilken fin tanke att lägga ut foton som bildar Norges färger.
Som alltid fina foton.
Lägg gärna ut bilden på Isrosen så att jag kan se om det är samma.

Ha en fortsatt fin dag

Congrats Norway! Wonderful shots to present a special event. Have a great week :)

You've chosen a nice way to symbolize the Norwegian flag. Could have been the Dutch flag too, but we don't have a lot of snow and we don't have glaciers at all ...

Congratulations with the European Song Contest.

In Fryslân, in the northern part of the Netherlands we had a party with red, white and blue too last night, but that was because of a football match ...

Mojo sa...

Beautiful AND educational. I love the red flower especially. (Don't know what it is, but I love it.)

Regina sa...

Wow. So awesome.

Audun sa...

Nydelige bilder. Det er når man ser slikt at man skjønner symbolikken i den vakre sangen

Denise sa...

Fantastic flowers!!!! Your macro shots are always a delight to see. Congratulations on Norway's win of the Eurovision Song Contest. I saw a YouTube of the young man who won and he was exceptionally talented. I wish I could play a fiddle that well.
