a very funny thing happen to me, while reading your message, my internet connection is very slow, specialy today, so the first note that started to appear was the norwegian one, and I was thinking this note looks very nice.. I was waiting for the "full note" when suddenly appeared the 20euro note, and I instantly thought: "oh a portuguese note!" :lol: :lol:

altough I've still to convert euros to escudos, euro is definitly my money :lol: :lol:

as to the message's content I don't know much.. sorry.. :oops:

What Internet connections do they have in Portugal ?
(I know it's a little off-topic here...)
Here in Belgium we have 1Mbit ADSL and 10Mbit cable.
Cable rulez :D

Back to the subject:
I don't think those yellow circles are random...
I didn't have 20€ bills, but the 5€ bills have that too.
And there the pattern of the circles was the same on all bills.
(All 4 of them actually)
So I think it's just part of the design.

I checked my notes-collection, and only the 'new' 10Guilders from the Netherlands have those rings too.

I knew that, they like to say, they're the only population in the world tottaly bilingual because of that.. by the way, the portuguese name for norway probably comes from Noreg, since in portuguese it's Noruega. (Suomi it's Finlândia , similar to english...)

my bet to the rings goes for optic reading! :wink:

You could say more definitively that Norway has two official languages: Nynorsk and Bokmal.

This only thing I found was this.

So it seems they were put there in order to prevent from making a good photocopy in a modern colour photocopier.
