Should the word "tysk" be capitalized as "Tysk" here? What is the common rule in Swedish?

Nationalities, languages, weekdays, months and holidays are not capitalised in Swedish unlike English, so ’Swedish, Chinese, Monday, March, Christmas’ are svensk, kinesiska, måndag, mars, jul.

Why not "my sister's boyfriend is German"?
