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.
