What is The National Anthem of Denmark?

Denmark has two official national anthems with equal status. Der er et yndigt land, the civil national anthem. Kong Christian stod ved højen mast, which is mainly used for royal and military occasions. “Der er et yndigt land” Commonly translated into English as “There is a lovely country”, is one of the national anthems of Denmark.

English Translation:

There is a lovely country
it stands with broad beech
near [the] salty eastern beach [Salten Østerstand]
It winds itself in hill, valley,
it’s called old Denmark
and it is Freja hall

There was in ancient times
the armor-suited fighters
rested from conflict
So they set out for the foe,
Now rest their bones
behind the mounds monoliths
