At C. Sanders Emblems, we’ve been working with the Norwegian-American 17th of May Committee since the late 1980s. During that time we’ve designed dozens of great pins, but this year they decided to do an ornament also. We created these beautiful Holiday ornaments and they’ve been an immediate hit.
The Norwegian-American 17th of May Committee commemorates Norwegian cultural heritage, and this ornament is designed to honor Norwegian women. The Viking longboat also pictured on the ornament features the word “Velkommen”, which means “Welcome.” The 17th of May marks the signing of the Norwegian constitution and in New York City a parade and celebrations are held every year on May 17th.
