Kalmar Union Banner

I have only seen one example of this flag, it was  indoors at the Danish National Museum's
exhibition on Margaret 1st of Denmark * 1352   +  28. oktober 1412
 and the
Kalmar Union  1997.  Commemorating 600 years of the Kalmar Union

Alex Heick  says it is well documented in contemporary sources
Rigens banner  Et nordisk flag


THE Kalmar Union  existed for 25 years under Margareta Valdemarsdotters leadership 
Kalmar 1397. 
Wikipedia Kalmar_Union

>> Kalmarunionen/union.htm
At a conference held at Dalaborg Castle, in March 1388, the Swedes were compelled to accept all Margaret's conditions, elected her "Sovereign Lady and Ruler", and engaged to accept from her any king she chose to appoint.

 On February 24, 1389, Albert, who had returned from Mecklenburg with an army of mercenaries, was routed and taken prisoner at Aasle near Falköping, and Margaret was now
the omnipotent mistress of three kingdoms.

Og det er aldrig afskaffet I stedet er det blevet glemt . . .

And the banner has never been abolished but forgotten -  probably deliberately because of 250 years of Scandinavian wars.
