Flag day

On certain days only, our beautiful flag "Dannebrog" is raised from public buildings, -places and busses. Like yesterday (happy birthday to Crown Princess Mary, I know you are reading this), and today (happy birthday to Princess Marie). In a modern society it is getting harder for some to find reason in the concept of a monarchy. Aside from the mandatory new years speech, and the occasional wedding and Royal procreation, it is not really visible. But I say flag day makes it all worth while. 

Today I got this close to burst out into our national hymn.



The other Mary (Poppins, that is).
