Copenhagen, Denmark

Some Info We Picked Up Beforehand

On many streets youíll see nude photographs and posters in shop windows. Most Danes have no problem with this; they not only donít like censorship, they consider an open attitude to be healthy. And good health is valued here. Danes bicycle on brightly decorated bikes, walk a lot, and eat well ó plenty of seafood, smorrebrod (open-faced sandwiches) made with dark rye bread, and hearty Danish beer. Denmark has a reputation as the happiest country in the world. Do you think thereís a connection?

Coat of Arms

The arms are based on the oldest seal of the city, known since 1254.The original seal showed a city wall with towers, which gradually was transformed in the three towers. The present arms were officially granted in 1661 by King Frederik III, whose monogram is seen on the middle tower. In addition to the shield itself, the arms showed three helmets, two lions as supporters and many other symbols around the shield (see below). These are no longer used.
