Nordita is the Nordic Institute for Theoretical Physics. Its purpose is to carry out research and strengthen the Nordic collaboration within the basic areas of theoretical physics...
A Nordic Collaboration
Reflecting the Nordic background, the institute has an official name in each of the five Nordic languages:
- Nordisk institut for teoretisk fysik (in Danish)
- Teoreettisen fysiikan pohjoismainen laitos (in Finnish)
- Norræna stofnunin í kennilegri eðlisfræði (in Icelandic)
- Nordisk institutt for teoretisk fysikk (in Norwegian)
- Nordiska institutet för teoretisk fysik (in Swedish)
Also, the five colours in the Nordita logotype have been taken from the specifications of the national flags of the five Nordic countries:
To foster and utilize existing Nordic strengths in theoretical physics

The core of the Nordita logotype is a five-pointed star, representing the five Nordic countries.The logotype was adopted for Nordita in 2007, as part of the efforts to rebuild Nordita in Stockholm after the move from Copenhagen.The five colours in the star are taken directly from the Nordic flags.
