Denmark Lesson Plan

It’s Flag Day in Denmark. Legend has it that on the night of June 15, 1219, the Danish army was caught by a surprise attack. In answer to prayers, a crack of thunder sounded and a red flag with a white cross fell from Heaven. When King Valdemar raised the flag, his troops won the battle.
