Copenhagen streets at flag flying day

Another day was added to the list of flag flying days last year. September 5th became official flag flying day to honour of all soldiers who have been on a mission abroad, since 1948. Yesterday I went to see the parade, with soldiers recently returned. I used the opportunity to take some photos of  Copenhagen streets for you.

    I did not know there was such a day as ‘flag flying day’, but what a wonderful idea to honour the soldiers that way. Love the pictures of your city – it looks so old (in a good way) and beautiful. Thanks for telling us about it. 🙂

      Hi Reggie, thank you for commenting. The flag flying day for the soldiers is the latest added to the list, which can be seen here: http://www.navalhistory.dk/english/theflag/flag%20flying%20days.htm
      Copenhagen celebrated its 800 birthday in 1967, but recent finds shows that there already was a harbour in the 700 th century. The construction of a new metro has given the archaeologists the chance to look deeper under the Copenhagen area, and they find interesting things. Remains of vikings farm has recently been found.
      My photos doesn´t realy show much of the old houses, I will post some later on.

    This was quite a feast ! Lively crowded streets, I like the pedestrians´ ones and their pavement. Very impressive houses around the large square. Thanks for sharing your lovely pictures on this special day, giiid.

      We were lucky to have a perfect sunny day, good for a walk. Family of the soldiers would of course come no matter what. If you look at the last photo, you will see the direction of Tivoli, it is a few meters down the street between the buildings, at left. All the photos shows walking-streets, except the one with the red house. Ar rush hour they can be as crowded as here. Thank you Isa.
