According to myth, the national flag descended from the sky to the Danish army during a battle in Estonia in 1219 and was institutionalized as a national symbol in the seventeenth century.

This period was marked by a slow progression of sovereignty among the Danes, a people who originated in Skaane (today the southern part of Sweden) but eventually were based in Jutland.

The national anthem, "Der er et Yndigt Land" ("There Is a Lovely Land"), was written around 1820. Denmark is a constitutional monarchy and the oldest kingdom in Europe.

According to historical sources it dates back to the ninth century, but myth dates it as far back as the sixth century.

Danes rarely refer to Danishness, a term used for the first time in 1836, but that term has been a hotly debated topic since the increase of immigration in the 1960s and Denmark's affiliation with the European Union (EU) in 1972.
