Greenland is an independent county located between the Arctic and Atlantic oceans. It is the largest island in the world. Despite that, it has the smallest population out of all the countries in the world, because over three-quarters are covered in ice. Greenland has a mysterious landscape and ancient Nordic ruins. It is also home to many polar bears, reindeer, and arctic hares.
Ittoqqortoormiit is a small settlement that is located in the eastern part of Greenland. As of 2013, the settlement only had a population of 452 people. The only way to get into the town is by traveling by helicopter or by boat. All of the ice makes it impossible to even fish in Ittoqqortoormiit. The settlement is most famous for having a very diverse wildlife, and it is home to many arctic animals, such as polar bears and seals.
The national flag of Greenland, accepted in 1985, is the only flag from a Nordic country that does not bear a Nordic Cross. The white band represents the ice cap while the red band stands for the ocean. The red part of the circle stands for the fjords while the white portion of the circle represents pack ice and ice bergs.
