The Nazi Flag

Today in the Word, MBI, August, 1991, p. 13

During the Nazi occupation of his country in WWII, King Christian X of Denmark noticed a Nazi flag flying over a Danish public building. He immediately called the German commandant, demanding that the flag be taken down at once. The commandant refused.

"Then a soldier will go and take it down." said the king.

"He will be shot," threatened the commandant.

"I think not," replied the king, "for I shall be the soldier."

Within minutes the flag was taken down.
