About Denmark and the capital, Copenhagen
|The national flag of Denmark||Borderline map of Denmark|
|Flag description: red with a white cross that extends to the edges of the flag; the vertical part of the cross is shifted to the hoist side; the banner is referred to as the Dannebrog (Danish flag) and is one of the oldest national flags in the world; traditions as to the origin of the flag design vary, but the best known is a legend that the banner fell from the sky during an early-13th century battle; caught up by the Danish king before it ever touched the earth, this heavenly talisman inspired the royal army to victory; in actuality, the flag may derive from a crusade banner or ensign. Note: the shifted cross design element was subsequently adopted by the other Nordic countries of Finland, Iceland, Norway, and Sweden.||Border length: total: 140 km. Border countries (total: 1): Germany 140 km.|
Did you know about Denmark?
- Denmark is Europes oldest kingdom, dating backto the 10th century. The present queen rules under a constitution granted in 1953.
- The Oresund bridge between Denmark and Sweden is the longest combined road-and-rail bridge in Europe.
The most southerly and smallest of the countries of Scandinavia, the Kingdom of Denmark is a constitutional monarchy in northern Europe. It comprises most of the Jutland Peninsula, which protrudes northwards from the North German Plain, and more than 500 islands, 100 of which are inhabited. The North Sea lies to the west of the Jutland Peninsula. The Faroe Islands in the Atlantic Ocean and Greenland off the coast of Canada are self-governing, dependent territories of Denmark.
Most of Denmark, including the islands, is low-lying with small hills found only in the central part of Jutland. Several fjords penetrate eastern Jutland from the Kattegat, and the most extensive of these, the Limfjorden, cuts right across the northernmost part of the peninsula, broadening in the west to form an extensive series of waterways. The western seaboard of Jutland is low with many dunes and sandbars cutting off lagoons and sandy beaches. The country intensively cultivated, so very little natural vegetation or wild areas remain.
Well-developed road, causeway, and ferry systems link the Danish islands to one another and the mainland and connect with the railway network. The Danish capital and largest city are Copenhagen, situated mainly on the island of Sjaelland but extending onto the nearby island of Amager. Denmark is a wealthy country, and the standard of living is high. About 85 percent of people live in the cities, towns or urban areas.
Agriculture has always been important to the Danish economy. The country produces a range of products for export, particularly bacon, butter, cheese, and pork. Danish beer and lager are famous throughout the world and are significant export products and important contributors to the economy. Denmark also has a large fishing fleet operating in international waters, catching mainly cod, herring and salmon. There are offshore reserves of oil and natural gas and land deposits of kaolin, lignite and some other minerals — most of the country’s electricity generated from coal or oil-fired power stations. In addition to its food processing and brewing industries, Denmark also produces a wide range of products from iron and steel to porcelain. Denmark attracts many foreign tourists each year who visit not only the capital, Copenhagen but also the islands and the Jutland Peninsula.
