  • Description

    In Oslo, as in all parts of Norway, May 17 was celebrated with grand parades by schoolchildren, Boy Scouts, Girl Guides, and members of other youth organizations. At the Royal Palace in Oslo, King Olav, Crown Prince Harald and Princess Astrid watched 30,000 children marching past in a procession lasting for more than three hours.

    On May 16, Norway commemorates the signing of the free Constitution in 1814, shortly before Norway had to accept union with Sweden. From 1381 to 1814 the Norwegians had been united with Denmark. Union with Sweden lasted from 1814 until 1905.
