It is a time to remember and give thanks and the Crown Prince and Princess of Denmark led events as their country marked Flag Day. Frederik and Mary attended a ceremony outside Christiansborg Castle and a service at Holmen Church as they joined many others paying tribute to members of Denmark's Armed Forces and those who have died in action.
The royal couple attended the traditional parade outside Christiansborg with Frederik taking the salute and reviewing troops. A wreath was also laid in memory of those who have died.
The church service at Holmen traditionally commemorates those who have died and Frederik and Mary joined hundreds of others inside to pay their own tributes.
Flag Day is also marked with smaller ceremonies across Denmark filled with meaning and significance. It is a special day for many, including the country's Royal Family.
