Norway

The Kingdom of Norway consists of the western portion of the Scandinavian Peninsula as well as the islands of Jan Mayen and Svalbard, off its western and north western coast.  To the east is Sweden and to the northeast, Finland and Russia.  The country is ruled by a monarchy, presently King Harald V and a prime minister who is the head of state.

The first stamps were issued in 1855.  The design was the Coat of Arms of Norway.  Since 1871, many stamps with a posthorn in the design have been issued.
