This is either an incredibly simple or incredibly lazy ad, depending on your point of view. To try and demonstrate the number of locations that Norwegian Airlines flies to, M&C Saatchi hid the flags of five other countries in the Norwegian standard. Well, sort of.
Red, white and blue are probably some of the most common colours to find in national flags, and stripes aren’t exactly, uh, original, but I’m still surprised by the number of different countries that can be represented by adding a few stray rectangles. Either way, it’s a clever, Mad Men-worthy piece of design. I just wonder how much Norwegian paid for it.
