Untitled[edit]

Why two translations, one of which we claim is "possibly more accurate"? Jwrosenzweig 17:57, 20 Feb 2004 (UTC)

Maybe you should call the second translation "alternative"? Here is a brand new German version: de:Der er et yndigt land :-) - Arne List 09:15, 2 Apr 2004 (UTC)

Kæmper[edit]

In this context, "kæmper"" means warriors, from "at kæmpe", to fight.

Kæmper means giants, not warriors, i have never encountered one instance where kæmper means warriors, stop babbling —Preceding unsigned comment added by 83.88.161.118 (talk) 05:12, 7 February 2009 (UTC)

But I have, and I am Danish. Kæmpe is sometimes giant and sometimes to fight. The word is still in use in ex. the word "forkæmper". Ex: http://www.dr.dk/Nyheder/Penge/2010/06/02/093651.htm?rss=true --87.50.88.27 (talk) 11:20, 12 June 2010 (UTC)

Anthem competion[edit]

I was thinking about adding some information on the competion for the national anthem. Originally Oegenslager didn't participate, and another song called "Danmark, Danmark, Danmark" won, but the song was so widely disliked that the managers asked Oegenslager directly to contribute a song, and then pronounced it the new winner. I am just not sure were to put it, or if there are any online references to the story. Carewolf (talk) 10:22, 22 September 2008 (UTC)
