Notes

The arms of Denmark is a deceptively hard blazon to handle algorithmicly. Conceptually it is simple enough: three blue lions in pale between nine red hearts. How exactly you arrange that is very much an artistic judgement and a blazon parser just isn't up to a lot of artistic judgement. So here it is with a LOT of charge adjustments.

A correspondent suggests the following simplification:

Or three lions passant azure in pale langued gules armed and crowned or slightly higher
3 hearts in pale in dexter side gu very much smaller much to the dexter 
3 hearts in pale gu slightly smaller very much smaller slightly lower much lower
3 hearts in pale in sinister side gu very much smaller much to the sinister
