The sun cross or sun wheel was the symbol of the Nordiska Rikspartiet.

The Nordiska rikspartiet (meaning "Nordic Reich party" or "Nordic Realm Party") was a National Socialist party in Sweden, founded in 1956. Between 1956 and 1961 the name was Sveriges nationalsocialistiska kampförbund ("National Socialist Struggle/Fight/Combat League of Sweden").

Göran Assar Oredsson was the party leader, except for the period 1975-1978, when his wife Vera Oredsson was party leader and became Sweden's first woman as party leader.

NRP was most active during 1970s and 1980s. It acted as a bridge between the earlier and later National Socialist and nationalist organizations.

The party published several journals, including Nordisk kamp ("Nordic Struggle/Fight/Combat") and Solhjulet ("Sun Wheel").

At the end of 2009, Oredsson dissolved the party. He died of cancer in 2010.
