This year's work of art
This year's poster is a simple illustration of 'Nordic
Celebration', but now that it is also anniversary year for both
Denmark, Norway and Sweden, there are at the same time placed three
flags in the characters' hands to celebrate the three countries ...
Which also makes it kind of party.
- Bárður Óskarsson
