The Royal Danish Life Guard and the Danish flags certainly color up the streets of one the major streets in Copenhagen known as "Strøget". The rest of the city appears to be quite grey compared to the colors of red and white - the colors of the Danish flag "Dannebrog".
The Royal Life Guard is a regiment founded in 1658 which works both as infantry regiment of the Danish Army, the Queens personal guards but also a orchestra - a frequently visitor in the Copenhagen street life.
The painting on the poster is painted by Paul Fischer who had a quite patriotic view on Copenhagen but one has to remember the painting was made just after the Danish unification with Southern Jutland. Maybe this is why this poster has a quite national romantic expression.
The original painting by Paul Fischer is to be found in the office of Henrik, Prince Consort of Denmark - the husband of Queen Margrethe II of Denmark.
