That flag is most likely burned in the days following the end I would think. Even the most vigorous member of Holger Dansk might have hesitated with his matches if he could anticipate the sums these things command today.
Holy jesus!!! As a scandinavian I really appreciate those danish tunics and insignia. A really big and warm thanks to you F.B and to david for sharing them.
David and FB many thanks for showing these superb examples from your collections. These are something I can never dream of handling personally but to be able to view items which due to there provenance I am certain are original is the next best thing.
Interesting thanks for that certainly the three lion shield on the flag is similar to the one on the tunic , hopefully Mr Delich or one of the Danish members can shed light on it !!
I can only reiterate we are very fortunate that FB is being able to post some of these very rare items for our perusal and education as has been said those cuff titles are extremely rare.

Thought shall be the harder , heart the keener,
Courage the greater as our strength faileth.
Here lies our leader ,in the dust of his greatness.
Who leaves him now , be damned forever.
We who are old now shall not leave this Battle,
But lie at his feet , in the dust with our leader
