Cross Trend by humon Cross Trend by humon
Yes, when they really want something, they grow fingers. :XD:

Denmark has a bunch of old crap. We have the oldest amusement part in the world (that’s still open), the oldest cinema (that has stayed in one place), the oldest kingdom, and of course the oldest flag that’s still in use. The other Nordic flags are basically just recoloured versions of the Danish one.

It is usually said that Betsy Ross made the first American flag, but there's a lot of versions of who designed it (One story even claims it was a French guy who did it). One version says that Washington, when having to choose a flag for the new country USA, insisted on simply taking the Danish one because he considered it “ideal for the purpose”. The Danes of course weren’t keen on this idea, but the Americans wouldn’t listen before the Danish flag designer Kasper Nielsen designed what is today known as “Stars and Stripes” and offered that instead.

The story comes from Norway and is hardly true, but it’s cute and silly non the less. :D

I think the only thing better is if the Danish shirt fell from the sky in a beam of light

Well, considering we (Norway) and Sweden both had to live with the danish flag for a century or four before being allowed our own ones again... Well, consider it a final vengeance >:)

Actually, the Danes forced the Norwegians to use their flagg, and the blue cross in the middle came when Sweden took over.
