Flor� is a town and the administrative centre of Flora municipality in the county of Sogn og Fjordane, Norway. It is also a former municipality that existed for just over 100 years. The town was founded on the Florelandet island between the Botnafjorden and Solheims fjorden by royal decree in 1860. In 2009, the city of Flor� had 8,448 inhabitants. Flor� is Norway's (and thus the Scandinavian Peninsula's) westernmost town, west of Amsterdam, Brussels, and Nice. It is the most western town on the mainland in the Nordic countries. Flor� is also home to Flor� Airport.
The municipality is named after the farm Flora (Old Norse Fl��ra) since the town of Flor� was built on its ground in 1860. The name is probably derived from fl�� which means "(strong) stream". The name of the town and former municipality of Flor� has the same name, but instead of ending with an "a", it has the Danish word � meaning "island" added to the end since the town is located on an island
