Valdemars Dag – 796 years ago on June 15, 1219, Dannebrog fell down from heaven during the battle in Estonia. King Valdemar and us Danes were losing the battle until the Danish Archbishop fell to his knees and started praying for a miracle. And it came ….. through the flag – we won the battle. Well, at least that is the story but it is a good story and it is still going strong 796 years later. Happy birthday to Dannebrog!
