An unofficial decoration for sure.

The date commemorates the day when the Germans declared a military state of emergency and took over the government. The Danish army and navy was disarmed and dissolved. The Danish navy sunk its own fleet to avoid the ships being taken over by the Germans. 
One of the locations where shots were exchanged was in Nyborg.
