About the Flag
The flag of Denmark is the oldest continuously used flag in the world and is also known as the Dannebrog. It features a red background and an off-center white cross. The shape is similar to almost all other Scandinavian countries, which may have been influenced by Denmark.
The most famous origin story of the Danish flag is a legend that states the flag fell from the heavens during a battle in 1219, helping lead the Danes to victory. There is evidence that the flag design was common during this time, but this origin story is important to Danish history and culture.
As for the meaning of the symbols and colors on the Danish flag, the white cross represents Christianity, and the red background is symbolic of battle. The colors red and white have also been used by the kings of Denmark for thousands of years.
