Arago: Flag of Norway

Flag of Norway

The third stamp in the Overrun Countries Series, issued on July 27, 1943, features the flag of Norway in red, white and blue. Germany's occupation of Norway in April 1940 was accomplished quickly and efficiently. This was the first outright act of war by the Nazis, the earlier occupations having been justified, albeit flimsily, by negotiations or 'German interests'.
