One of the first Standards created to identify Danish Royalty, this Standard bears a heavy resemblance to early England's "Wessex Flag", and may have served as the initial idea. Flow from 1300 to 1397, the Standard had a Yellow Field. Three off-set Lions (a symbol of Royalty throughout Europe and beyond), were Blue in color. Red Hearts, representing that The King or Queen were the "hearts of their Kingdom" were imposed throughout. Size varied greatly, but 5 feet by 3.5 feet was possibly a norm. When flown, they represented the actual physical presence of the Monarch in a Palace or Castle (in Residence or in Court).
