From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

This list contains mottos of Norwegian institutions. Norway does not have a state motto, however the personal motto of the reigning monarch can be said to fill some of that function. The motto of the three last monarchs has been Alt for Norge which translates roughly as All for Norway. The motto was first chosen by King Haakon VII and immortalised as the rallying motto of the Norwegian resistance against the German occupation of Norway. It is not common for Norwegian municipalities or government agencies to have mottos.



Each reining monarch chooses his personal motto, however the last three kings have all chosen "Alt for Norge".
