National costumes, called "bunad" are used only on special occasions. They have been designed mainly during the last hundred years, using much older costumes as guidance. Since 1947 there has been a Government council approving new costumes, and there are now about 450 approved national costumes for smaller and larger districts. Trondheim is the biggest town in Trøndelag, so naturally there are many girls with Trøndelag "bunad" to be seen. Unique to this type, it comes in four color variants: blue, red and green as represented here, and now also black. There are also three (lesser) variations of the apron. (2013)
