When Hitler invaded Norway, he prohibited the people from wearing any symbol representing their king. To protest this and Hitler's treatment of the Jews, Norwegians began wearing the paper clip on their lapels, the paper clip having been invented by a Norwegian Jew. It was very brave of them as the punishment for doing so could be imprisonment, deportation, or execution. But they did it anyway.
