BACKGROUND: Founded in May 1933 by Vidkun Quisling, the Norwegian Nasjonal Samling (National Unity) party was designed and structured on the NSDAP. Although the NS party never enjoyed any electoral success prior to the invasion of Norway by the Germans, Quisling proclaimed himself Prime Minister after the invasion. This was originally rejected by the Germans, but in September 1940 Quisling's NS party was declared the only legal political party in Norway and in February 1942 Hitler finally appointed Quisling as Minister President of Norway. The NS was divided into numerous sub-sections, designated, "Hird's", which is an ancient Norwegian word translating roughly as, the king's followers. The NSUF, NS Ungdomsfylking, (NS Youth Front), was the designation that encompassed all the Norwegian NS youth groups, (Hirds), including both younger and older age groups and male and female groups. All of the Norwegian NS youth groups were issued a sports uniform with the standard sun cross emblem to be applied to the front center.

PHYSICAL DESCRIPTION: Machine woven red and gold rayon sun cross consists of a cross potent with central, golden yellow, vertical and horizontal arms with slightly flared ends on a red background field with a golden yellow outer edge stripe and measures approximately 7cm x 7cm. Of Note: The sun cross was the symbol of, Norway's patron saint, Saint Olaf.
