Yes, when they really want something, they grow fingers.

Denmark has a bunch of old crap. We have the oldest amusement part in the world (that’s still open), the oldest cinema (that has stayed in one place), the oldest kingdom, and of course the oldest flag that’s still in use. The other Nordic flags are basically just recoloured versions of the Danish one.

It is usually said that Betsy Ross made the first American flag, but there's a lot of versions of who designed it (One story even claims it was a French guy who did it). One version says that Washington, when having to choose a flag for the new country USA, insisted on simply taking the Danish one because he considered it “ideal for the purpose”. The Danes of course weren’t keen on this idea, but the Americans wouldn’t listen before the Danish flag designer Kasper Nielsen designed what is today known as “Stars and Stripes” and offered that instead.

The story comes from Norway and is hardly true, but it’s cute and silly non the less. :D

It's kinda hypocritical of Denmark to complain about other countries making knock-offs of his flag, considering he stole it from Estonia.

unseen panel 1: Iceland creeping up on England, while Jaws Music plays.
unseen panel 2: Iceland extending his claws, and then jumping up on England, who now has a horrified face.

Denmark may have lots of old crap, but San Marino is old crap. The country was founded in the 4th century!

And then there's Lebanon, whose flag sports a cedar right in the middle. We really really love our cedars

Then there's Turkmenistan. Whoever designed that flag was on a serious acid trip.
