Penyokong team Denmark...Read This!!

Ada penyokong Denmark ke...interesting facts for you guys....

1) Denmark's national flag - the Dannebrog - is the oldest national flag which is still in use in the world.

2) Denmark is incredibly flat - it's highest point, Møllehøj, is only 170m above sea level.

3) Denmark is well known for being the home of Lego (Yessss!!! This September, we come!!!)

4) Other, non-Lego things invented in Denmark include the drum motor and the "LifeStraw" water purification system.

5) One thing that wasn't invented in Denmark - the pretend-Danish ice cream Häagen-Dazs.

6) Denmark is largely made up of a large number of islands, known as the Danish Archipelago - there are over 400 islands in total (depending on which definition of "island" is used), around 70 of which are inhabited.

7) Australia's famous Sydney Opera House (I've been there, huhu!) was designed by a Danish architect, Jørn Utzon.

8) The Danish royal family is the oldest in Europe - they can trace their lineage back to the first true King of Denmark, the Viking king Gorm the Old, who ruled from 936 AD.

9) Denmark is regularly ranked as one of the happiest countries in the world, with among the lowest levels of inequality, among the highest income per head, and among the lowest levels of corruption. Well done Denmark (r u sure everybody is happy there?hmmm...).

10) Denmark hold the distinction of being the only country to win the European Championships despite having failed to even qualify for the tournament. Denmark triumphed in Euro 1992 despite having been beaten to qualification by Yugoslavia - they only ended up at the tournament when Yugoslavia were banned due to the Yugoslav wars.

Kalau ada masa, nanti kita cari team lain plak ye.....
