Colours as signifiers of identity
The colours used to signify identity are based on the eight Nordic flags and consist of: dark blue, blue, red, and yellow. These clear and obvious colours make up the primary palette. Blue and white are consistently used as main colours in formal contexts, e.g. on letters, flags and podiums.
The accent palette is inspired by Nordic light. These are subtle colours that provide a contrast to the bold flag colours.
These primary and accent colours, combined with a scale of neutral grey tones, make up the colour universe for official Nordic co-operation.
