It does not appear in the dictionary
In the Swedish dictionary, published by the Swedish Academy, there is no term “blue-brown”, but if “brown” it is said that the term describes something as Nazi.
Retired language professor Olle Josephson says Aftonbladet Okeson’s interpretation that brown was the color of the Nazis in the 1930s is correct, but Poland’s understanding of the term brown blue is also possible.
“This is in line with the Language Board’s definition, which is based on how the word is used and cannot be directly linked to Nazism,” Josephson told the newspaper.
