  1. That's SO cool! Under WWII Denmark was taken by the German and we weren't allowed to use our flag . so instead we'd paint the roofs red/white and used red/white stripes when ever possible. This would be very 'authentic Danish' in all red & whites stripes. This is a new 'must make'!

  2. This one is just fantastic!! And the great thing is, there are só many countries that use red, white and blue as their flag colors that you can turn in into a patriotic jumper of your own country very easily :)

    This is really similar to one that I saw in a museum exhibition about Sydney during WWII
