Swedish term or phrase: tre kronor
resturant name
Linda
Tre Kronor
Explanation:
Naturally "Tre Kronor" means "Three Crowns" etc., but translation of restaurant's name is usually made by transliteration. Therefore it will be the same "Tre Kronor".

Example in USA:

Tre Kronor
3258 W. Foster Ave.
Chicago
Tel: (773) 267-9888


Albany Park Scandinavian restaurant is considered by most the city's best, with delicious danish rolls and a Swedish-accented menu. It's open every day for breakfast and lunch, but dinner is only on Friday and Saturday.

three crowns


Explanation:
Since it's a restaurant it may be a play on words. Kronor has (at least) two meaning, one being the Swedish currency, the other meaing the head dress of kings and queens.

Three crowns have long been an official symbol for Sweden. I think it's a few hundred years old, from the times when Sweden and it neighbours kept concering each other. At one point Sweden ruled over 3 countries and the symbol was established. The background is blue and the crwosn are yellow (Swedish colours). One crown is above the others, like a hirarcical structure (possibly to show the one country ruling the other two).
