Denmark's Flag

The flag of Denmark (called the Dannebrog. which means "the cloth of the Danes") is a red and white Scandinavian cross (an off-center cross). The ratio of its height to its width is 28:37. The flag was originally a perfect square, but was later elongated.

According to Danish legend, the flag fell from the sky on June 15, 1219. to the Danish King Valdemar II, who on that day defeated Estonia in battle (this would make it the oldest national flag in Europe still in use). The first recorded use of this flag was in the 1300s.
