Norway Postcard - Reine

Bilhete Postal


This card shows a very peaceful view of Reine, located at the north of Norway. On the card, there are two beautiful stamps. One stamp bear the country name "Norge". This is what most Norwegians call their own country. Another one with the country name "Noreg", which is in nynorsk, a rarer variety of written Norwegian. Both varieties are allowed on stamps, banknotes and official documents, because the two written forms are supposed to be co-equal. Very interesting.
