Flag of Greenland
Adopted June 21, 1985
Designed by Thue Christiansen
Proportions 2:3

The flag of Greenland consists of two equal red and white horizontal stripes, with a circle with reversed colors in the centre of the flag. The proportions are 2:3.

Symbolism[edit | edit source]

Red and white are the colors of the flag of Denmark, which Greenland is a territory of. The circle represents the sun on the horizon, which is a common sight in Greenland, since it is in the Arctic. The circle is placed closer to the hoist instead of in the centre to avoid being worn off the flag by the wind.
