   An old slogan of Norway appears to have been, from a poster in Flam:
"Norway--The Land of the Midnight Sun."  Whatever that means.

This refers to the fact that in far northern latitudes, near and around the
summer solstice, the sun does not set until very late.  At the solstice
itself, it is still light at midnight.
