Flags of the World Series: Greenland

Greenland is an autonomous constituent country within the Kingdom of Denmark between the Arctic and Atlantic Oceans, east of the Canadian Arctic Archipelago. Though physiographically a part of the continent of North America, Greenland has been politically and culturally associated with Europe (specifically Norway and Denmark, the colonial powers, as well as the nearby island of Iceland) for more than a millennium. The majority of its residents are Inuit, whose ancestors began migrating from the Canadian mainland in the 13th century, gradually settling across the island.

A lot of beautiful stamps with two nice postmarks:
Arctic circle race (from set Sports in Greenland), issued on 12.05.2016.
Greenlandic Mining (from set of two), issued on 07.05.2012.
Queen Margrethe II (from set of two), issued on 22.10.2012.
Christmas (from set of two), issued on 17.10.2016.

Thank you Arnold!
