What does the stick figure on this Norwegian P-3 represents?

Its the Saint, it’s the unit badge of 333 Squadron Royal Norwegian Airforce, also called the Saints. The Squadron was originally 333 Squadron RAF, the unit was transferred to Norway in 1945.

Its also the symbol of a tv show from the UK back in the 60’s called The Saint, it stared Roger Moore as Simon Templar.

Yep. Hopefully it will be transferred over to one of the New P-8 when they start arriving.

Thanks,

The stick figure gave me a kick as there is a whole class of car back window sticker here in the US with the stick figure theme.

I'm sure it will give all the mechanic in the P-8 factory a kick if the same designation is used.
