The exhibition provides an overview of the background and events of the Battle of Lyndanisse, the Danish periods of rule in Estonia 1219–1227 and 1238–1346, as well as the Danish monarchy at that time. The Battle of Lyndanisse has later become associated with the legend of the Dannebrog, the national flag of Denmark, falling from the sky. The display also introduces the Order of the Dannebrog and the symbols of the Dannebrog and the three lions in the heraldry of Tallinn and Estonia. The exhibition will be opened by Her Majesty, Margrethe II of Denmark.
The exhibition of the Dannebrog legend in Estonian art and heraldry will become a permanent exhibition in the vaulted cellar of the Maiden Tower. The Maiden Tower café will also offer a Danish specials menu.
