No, Norway is not covered by an EU trademark. An EU trademark grants protection only in the European Union member countries, and Norway is not a member of the EU.

However, it's worth noting that citizens of Norway have one advantage when applying for an EU trademark: the ability to file the application without representation. Typically, the EUIPO requires applicants to have legal representation if they don't have a domicile, principal place of business or a real and effective commercial establishment within the EU. Also, Norwegian representatives can represent their clients in trademark cases in all stages of the application process before the EUIPO.
