The flag of 1821 was the idea of Frederik Meltzer, Member of Parliament from Bergen.
The discussion on the flag circled around considerations about reflecting the past, that is the Danish colours, which enjoyed great popularity, and considerations that the union with Sweden should also be reflected in the flag.
At the same time, the colour combination red, white, blue was also attractive to the Parliament because it reflected the colours of liberty, as in the flags of France, the USA, the United Kingdom and the Netherlands.

Norway was ruled by Denmark from the mid-15th century until 1814, when it was joined in a union with Sweden until 1905.
The Norwegian flag, first adopted in 1821, is based on the Danish national flag, with a blue cross placed within the white cross of the Dannebrog.
