Immigrants[edit]

"Of the 10.4%, approximately 200,000 (34%) are of a Western background, and approx. 390,000 (66%) have a non-Western background." This passage is problematic. What exactly is a "Western" background. If one is a Muslim from Bosnia and ethnically European, does that make that person "Western"? What about a Turkish person who is white in appearance and has blonde hair? Could the person who wrote this section please find a better way to capture this... Colipon+(Talk) 21:03, 30 October 2014 (UTC)

Tycho Brahe?[edit]

Tycho Brahe was a well known danish noblemen and made theories similar to Copernicus, so would'nt a entry in the Technologies section be neccesary? — Preceding unsigned comment added by 78.143.69.99 (talk) 16:02, 10 November 2014 (UTC)

Tycho was born in an area that has been in Denmark and Sweden at different times. — Preceding unsigned comment added by White373737 (talkcontribs) 17:13, 10 March 2015 (UTC)
It was Danish at the time of Tycho Braha, and he was a scientist in Copenhagen for the Danish king and later a Danish nobel.Carewolf (talk) 22:46, 10 March 2015 (UTC)
He was a member of the nobility from birth. Favonian (talk) 12:00, 15 March 2015 (UTC)

Wrong Flag?[edit]

Isn't the flag in the info-box wrong for 'The Kingdom of Danmark'? It should be a split flag for the kingdom, and the square flag for the nation. Carewolf (talk) 16:46, 3 December 2014 (UTC)

North pole[edit]

there should be something about the claim of the north pole in this article. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 24.89.95.149 (talk) 23:11, 16 December 2014 (UTC)

Country vs kingdom[edit]

I edited this article some time ago to give better balance to all of the kingdom. Currently, however, Netherlands and New Zealand are about the constituent countries. For consistency, I wouldn't object to the same here, as long as we have an equivalent hat note such as

This page is about the constituent country within the Kingdom of Denmark. For other uses, see Denmark (disambiguation).
