congrats Jørgen with your liberation from Denmark in 1814 :), even though it was a short relief while the swedes came along and grabbed you for the next 90 years :cautious:

Thank you, Thorkil. Technically, it's the constitution that we celebrate, since, as you point out, we weren't really free, and the liberation from Sweden came as late as 7 June 1905. Interestingly the Swedish national day, until 1984 "Svenske Flaggans Dag" is on 6 June. The reason for the name of the day was, as far as I know, to celebrate the new Swedish flag, the one without the "herring salad", a combination of the Swedish and Norwegian flags, in the corner. So in a way, you can say that the Swedes are celebrating that they finally got rid of us, while we celebrate that you got rid of us...
