Flag Raising at CC

I bought Don, the Happy Norwegian, the Norway flag for his birthday in March. We got the flagpole in July and managed to get it installed in November. Procrastinators that we are.

This link for the Norway flag had some interesting history about the origins of the flag designs:

It's notable that this style of Norwegian flag was first officially flown in 1899.  In 1905 Norway regained its independence and could now fly its flag openly to welcome its new Norwegian King -- who was Danish!
