Valdemar´s day

danish flag at blue sky on Valdemar´s day

Today is “Valdemar´s day”, one of our official flag-days. Valdemar was King in Denmark from 1202-1248.  At a big battle in Estonia, the flag came from the sky out of nothing, and helped the Danes to victory.

Wikipedia : The red banner with a white cross (Danish:Dannebrog) has been the national flag of the Danes since 1219. It is Europe’s oldest flag design still in modern use. 

 Today is Valdemars day, and my late mothers birthday.
