Malik Milfeldt, Senior Consultant, at Visit Greenland, stopped by Quark's offices to chat about culture and travel in Greenland. Below are 5 questions we asked Malik about this beautiful country:
1. What is the symbolism behind the Greenland flag?
The flag of Greenland was designed by local artist (and Greenland native) Thue Christiansen. The flag was adopted in 1985 and features the Danish colors. The white is symbolic of the ice and snow that covers most of the island, and the red is symbolic of the sun shining over the land.
2. What is the most unique feature about Greenland?
I think the most unique feature is the tranquillity. It’s the silence, peacefulness, openness and fresh air that you’ll notice immediately.
