Do you want to know what special story is connected to the Danish flag?
Its quite interesting and unusual. King Waldemar was in battle against the Estonians and the Danes were not doing well. The Danneborg (Danish cloth) fell from the sky and the king grabbed it.
At this time the tide of battle was now in favor of the king and his troops and King Waldemar defeated the Estonians.
The knights of Malta have the same flag and in 1219 they helped the Danes with their battle against the pagan Estonians.
In an attempt to explain away the flag is that it was sent to the king from the pope or to the bishop from the pope.
This flag has a red field with a white cross on it. The horizontal stripe is midline but the vertical stripe is somewhat (noticeably) left of center.
The cross was symbolic of Christianity and the cross was accepted and is also used on the flags of the other Nordic nations, Finland, Iceland, Norway and Sweden. Some people say the Danish flag is based on the old crusader flag.
The Danish flag is the oldest continuously used flag in existence which wasn’t adopted until 1675. This flag is almost square and has unusual proportions.
Supposedly when this flag was found it was said “when you raise this banner against your enemies they will yield before you.
