Denmark Flag

The Kingdom of Denmark is a constitutional monarchy and a sovereign state. The national territory includes Denmark and the Faroe Islands, both of which are located in Northern Europe, and Greenland, which is part of North America. The Kingdom of Denmark is therefore an intercontinental state.

The autonomous regions of Greenland and the Faroe Islands fly their own flags, have their own official languages ​​and belong to NATO, but not to the EU.

The motherland between Scandinavia and Central Europe covers an area of ​​around 43,000 km², about a third of which is on the 405 islands.

Denmark has the only land border with Germany. A relatively strong Danish minority lives in the former Danish southern Schleswig. In Denmark, on the other hand, there is a German minority in the former German North Schleswig.
In February 2006, Denmark, which had hitherto been inconspicuous in terms of foreign policy, became the center of the world’s public eye due to the cartoon dispute.
