ANSWER - Tuesday Trivia: Symbols

What common office device did the citizens of Norway adopt as a symbol of Nazi resistant during World War II?

The paper clip, which Norwegians wore on their lapels. The device, which they considered a Norwegian invention, represented national unity (as in, We are bound together) against the Nazi occupation.

Congratulations to Mochaface friend Catizhere, who guessed the correct answer.

Yipee! I got it!.

I was thinking that perhaps it symbolized the swastika all folded up on itself.

Interesting. I didn't think of it like that. I thought because a paper clips holds things together it was more a symbol of their unity and bonding together.
