Nordic Cross

FLAGS are better with a Nordic Cross. At least, that’s my opinion. Denmark was the first country to use the Nordic Cross. The legend says that during a battle, which was going badly for the Danes, the sky opened and a flag with a cross fell out. The king grasped the flag before it could touch the ground and proudly waved it in front of his discouraged troops, giving them hope, and thereby leading them to victory. The Danish love their flag so much, they even have a name for it: Dannebrog. Here there are some other flags with Nordic Crosses.
