• Hej is a common greeting in Denmark. We present to you some interesting information about Denmark.

    Danish is the official language of Denmark. Did you know that more than 5 million people speak in this language? It is also spoken in a few communities south of the German border. Danish and German are both Germanic languages and share a lot in terms of pronunciation, vocabulary, and grammar. There are, however, some notable differences, and today.

    Let us know some interesting facts about the Danish people:

    1. Did you know that Denmark is named as ‘One of the Happiest countries’?
      And it remains to be on the very top of the UN World Happiness Report.

    2. First acknowledged in 1219, the Danish flag "Dannebrog" remains the oldest state flag in the world still in use by an independent nation. Turning 800 years has never looked better - and we'll celebrate it in true Danish birthday fashion: with a bunch of flags of course.
