So is another important country's flag we all know and love
Ah, yes - Costa Rica!
Russia, Thailand, USA, France, the Netherlands- there's actually a lot ;)
And while we're still in a Nordic language course, let's not forget our Atlantic islander friends Iceland and the Faroe Islands! ;D
Australia too! (;
And New Zealand.. :/
dont forget chile!
Literally three of the top four flag colours in the world.
Well, sort of. France is actually blue, white, and red. (This comment is kind of tongue-in-cheek, but as I understand it, they consider the order significant.)
The United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland! ;)
Isn't it more common to say the Norwegian flag instead of Norway's flag?
It probably is, but that's not the Swedish sentence in this case. And it is more common to say "Norges flagga" than "Den norska flaggan" even though that of course isn't wrong.
Where I'm from we often say insert country's flag.
Mother of all flags
In the pronunciation of this sentence there seems to be an exaggerated pause for the comma after the word röd. Is that intentional? Do all commas get a similar treatment in spoken swedish?
No, no more than English ones do. This one does seem exaggerated.
So Norwegian flag... is incorrect way of saying it?
Croatian is red, white and blue, too! :)
Got it, sorry
But what is the difference between 'the flag of Norway' and 'the Norwegian flag'? Isn't it the same thing? Please explain
They're different sentence constructions even though they amount to the same thing in practice in most scenarios. One uses a noun and one uses an adjective.
