Why? Just flexing?
When the Nazis ordered Jews to wear yellow stars, Christian X said he would wear one too as a badge of honor, a true king.
Probably a legend but there was a story about the Nazi flying their flag over their headquarters in Copenhagen. The King riding by and seeing the flag, tells a German sentry that this is a violation of the armistice agreement and that the flag must be taken down. The sentry replies that this will not be done. The King then says if the flag is not taken down, he will send a Danish soldier to take it down. The sentry responds, "The soldier will be shot." The King replies "the Danish soldier will be me." According to the story, the flag was taken down.
