After the "green wave" of the 1980s, many city dwellers moved to the countryside, hoping to return to nature.
Roughly eighty of its more than four hundred islands are inhabited.
Jutland, Zealand, and Funen (Fyn) are the largest and most densely populated regions.
Danes use the flag at festive occasions, including birthdays, weddings, sports events, political meetings, and public holidays.
Hymns, songs, and ballads provide metaphors associated with Danish nationality, the mother tongue, school, history, and homeland.
Danes rarely refer to Danishness, a term used for the first time in 1836, but that term has been a hotly debated topic since the increase of immigration in the 1960s and Denmark's affiliation with the European Union (EU) in 1972.
Much political and public debate on elements of nationality, sympathies, feeling, and patriotism occurred in the late twentieth century.Danes constantly negotiate and change their culture in response to contact with people and items from other countries.However, for many people, the national identity lies in the Danish language.After centuries of sovereign rule by the king, the first common constitution was completed and signed in 1849, initiating a government with an assembly consisting of a lower house ( Folketing ) and upper house ( Landsting ).The making of a common constitution was an important element in the nineteenth century's political emphasis on the formation of nationhood. Beer, allotment gardens, the flag, the national anthem, democracy, Christmas, folk high schools, personal well-being, and coziness are some of the elements of the national culture, but questions of how the cultural heritage can survive and what it is emphasize the fact that Denmark is a nation of cultural borrowers.Immigrants from other Scandinavian and northern European countries account for most of the increases, but immigrants from southern Europe and the Middle East are the most noticed in public debate. Danish belongs to the Germanic family language within the Indo-European languages.
