Flag of Greenland (GIF)


Greenland is an island and Denmark's autonomous region located east of the Canadian Arctic Archipelago, between the Arctic and Atlantic oceans. Its capital is Nuuk, and its population is approximately 55,000.

The Greenland flag consists of two horizontal stripes of white and red and a two-color disc located slightly to the left of the center. The part of the disc on the white stripe is red, and the part on the red stripe is white. The colors are the same as on the Danish flag. The large white part of the flag symbolizes the ice cover, and the red part within the disc represents the fjords. The white part of the disc represents the glaciers, and the large red part of the flag represents the ocean. The height-to-width ratio in the flag is 2:3, and the flag was adopted on May 1, 1989.

Well the flag's colours have been changed again on Wikipedia. This time to match the colours of Denmark's flag as apparently they use the same shade of red.

Wikipedia changes a lot. They can suddenly go back to the flag version of months ago.
