Since the 1500-century legend of Dannebrog been associated with the Battle of Lyndanise in Estonia, 15 June 1219 (Valdemar), where the Danes won control of northern. The legend tells that Estonians attacked the Danish camp, though these otherwise previously had expressed wanting to submit to the Danes and go over to the Christian faith. The Danes were hard-pressed, and only because the archbishop Anders Sunesen stretched his hands in prayer to heaven, to defeat at first prevented. Eventually, however, was archbishop so exhausted that he could not keep his arms up anymore and it seems that Estonians would defeat Valdemar Victorious Army. At this moment, a red cross banner have fallen from heaven, and have given the Danes victory.
