Norway publicized the WJ by issuing two stamps honoring Scouting in Norway.  Both the Boy Scout and Girl Scout badges are shown on the stamps.  The 125-ore stamp depicts Scouting in summer.  The 140-ore depicts Scouting in winter.

Post Card

Norway printed a 100 ore post card as belated response to requests for a stamp to honor the Jamboree.  The 5 flag colors of the stylized tents represent the five host Nordic countries of NORDJAMB.  The 5 Scouts spell out "N-O-R-G-E" with Semaphore code.
