The Danish flag, also called Danneborg (“Danish cloth” in Danish), consists of a red background and white cross which extends to the edges of the flag. The vertical arm of the cross follows the model of the other Scandinavian flag thus it is located closer to the left side of the flag. According to the legend, the flag was sent down from heaven in order to help the Danish army on June 15, 1219 during the Battle of Lyndanise. King Valdemar II. would nearly lose the battle against the pagan Estonians, if there was not a sign from heaven that gave the army new energy that helped them to win the battle. The flag is also used in a little bit modified version as a naval flag – it is square and it has two little flags similar to swallowtail.
Copenhagen, the capital, is a cool, cosmopolitan city whose debonair inhabitants foster an affable atmosphere more typical of a small town than capital city. Synonymous with bold architecture and cutting-edge design, Copenhagen is also a culinary pioneer. The city’s cobbled streets and windswept squares harbour some of the best restaurants in the world, most notably Noma, the brilliant brainchild of Rene Redzepi.
To the north, the Jutland west coast stretches for more than 500km (311 miles) from the marshlands of South Jutland to drifting sand dunes and wide sandy beaches of North Jutland. Skagen, Denmark’s northernmost town on the east coast of the Skagen Odde peninsula in the far north of Jutland, is a favourite holiday destination among Danish families who come to bask on golden beaches and watch scintillating Scandinavian sunsets. Life is blissful here, it is little wonder that Denmark is one of the world’s happiest countries.
