In Denmark we raise our flag when someone has a birthday - and this year it’s the national flag’s birthday. Dannebrog turns 800 on June 15th. 2019. Frederiksborg Museum of National History marks the occasion with an exhibition and activities.

A sign from the sky

On June 15th, 1219 the Danish flag, Dannebrog, appeared on the sky over Lyndanisse in Estonia. Here the Danish king Valdemar 2. was in the middle of a battle against the Estonian pagans, and he was struggling hard. The Danes took the appearance of the flag as a sign and were victorious. So the legend goes.

The history of Dannebrog

Frederiksborg Museum of National History celebrates the 800th birthday of Dannebrog with an exhibition that portrays the Danish crusades in the Baltic Sea and the conquest of Estonia. The history of Dannebrog up until the present will also be told.

See the exhibition from April 13 – October 20 2019.
