This is the year of the Danes for the Nordic Culture Clubs! We will be honoring all six Scandinavian cultural groups, but especially the Danes this year. In honor of our celebration of Denmark, look for Tivoli Tuesday posts. Every Tuesday, we will fill you in on all things Danish!
It’s raining Danish flags! Legend says that the Danish Flag, called the Dannebrog, fell from the sky during a battle in Estonia. Dannebrog means ‘flag of the Danes’, or ‘the red flag’. The first mention of the Dannebrog in a Danish text dates back to 1478. (denmark.dk)
