Coat of Arms: The National Coat of Arms
dates from the Middle Ages and features an upright, yellow crowned lion
rampant, holding a white and yellow axe on a red, triangle-shaped field.
It's one of the oldest in all of Europe and originated as a
personal coat of arms for the royal family. After slight adjustments
over time, the current version shown was approved by the King of Norway
on May 20, 1992.
