Fact of the Day: Old Denmark Flag

Since a nation's flag changes often with changes in government/regimes throughout the centuries, most of the world's flags aren't terribly old. The oldest is Denmark's national flag.

How old is it? Seems like this post is missing a bit of key information!

Adam said...

That's hard to say. It originated during the Crusades times, but took awhile to be officially adopted. So there are several answers.

Good God:
Try Germany 1933-1945.
Russia: 1917 - the fall of the Soviet Union.
There are heaps of flag changes thanks to dictatorial regimes.
Anyhow Turnip Top may even change the USA flag to the Trump Towers
and Golf resorts flag...........now wouldn't that be "FUN"???

Well, the United States flag changed every time a new state was added, or else I think that might be one of the oldest.
