Dannebrog 800 years
On June 15th, 1219 the Danish flag, Dannebrog, appeared on the sky over Lyndanisse in Estonia. Here Valdemar 2. was in the middle of battle against the Estonian pagans.
So it says in an old legend. The battle ended with a Danish victory.
At Frederiksborg we celebrate 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.
