Denmark’s flag, called Dannebrog, is the oldest state flag still in use by an independent nation, adopted in 1218. According to legend, God gave the flag to the Danes during a battle. From then on, it has been the flag of Danish kings. Like most Scandinavian flags, Dannebrog incorporates the Scandinavian cross. Depicted in white on this flag, it is a symbol of Christianity.
This flag is made from durable 200-Denier nylon that has been treated to resist fading. The flag is finished with a 3 in., flannel-lined pole hem with Velcro tabs for hanging. Its image is dyed, single-sided, and reversed on the back. This flag is suitable for indoor or parade use.
This flag is used by Denmark’s government and displayed at the U.N. Headquarters in New York.
