The Nordic Swan
The Swan represents trust, integrity and freedom. It has served as a symbol of Nordic co-operation for over three decades. The new Swan is a simple, strong and open image of a swan in flight.
Open-ness to new thoughts, ideas and partnerships is one of the fundamental principles of Nordic co-operation.
The Swan alone
The Swan is used by itself on flags, podiums and other places where it needs to be recognised at a distance. In this context, the Swan signifies formal Nordic co-operation, and so is white on a primary blue background.
The Swan can also be used as a more subtle signifier of identity, e.g. as an imprint on folders, notebooks or other merchandise.
