Flag flying days in Norway

There is a number of flag flying days in Norway.

National (and merchant) flag of Norway
State flag of Norway
Sami flag

Dates when the Norwegian state flag is flown by all branches of government and state agencies are listed in Article 4 of the regulations concerning the use of the state flag and the merchant flag, as modified by Royal Resolution of 3 December 2004.[1] Civilians are also encouraged to display the national flag on these flag flying days. The flag is flown on the birthday of a member of the Norwegian Royal House, on some Christian holidays and on the dates of significant events of Norwegian history.

On the Day of the Sami people both state institutions and civilians are encouraged but not required to fly the Sami flag in addition to the Norwegian flag.[2]
