Rosemaling/Norwegian Art

What is "rosemaling"?

Rosemaling is a painting tradition that originated in rural, eastern communities of Norway in the mid-1700s. Characterized by ornate curves, flowing scrollwork and floral designs, traditional styles are regionally distinctive and named for the region in Norway in which they first developed.

You do not need to judge the quality of the rosemaling in its adherence to traditional methods or design. Rosemaling, in this context, may be seen as an inspiration - some banners have been designed in the rosemaling style.
