Nyborg as World Heritage
The town and castle of Nyborg tell a unique story from Denmark's medieval period. The well-preserved castle, town and surroundings, seen as a whole, comprise an irreplaceable heritage site that can be a worthy candidate for the World Heritage List. The project "Nyborg as a World Heritage Site" has its own logo and the title: "Nyborg - The Heart of the Kingdom of Denmark". The heart symbolizes Nyborg's role as capital city, the pulsating centre of the country where important decisions were made. The royal residence's town plan is heart-shaped, and hearts decorate the royal coat of arms. The red and gold of the logo are the Oldenborg dynasty's colours; Christian III, who used the town of Nyborg as his royal residence, was a member of the Oldenborg family.
