GREENLAND - Kalaallit Nunaat

Greenland (GreenlandicKalaallit Nunaat DanishGrønland ) is an autonomous country within the Kingdom of Denmark, located 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. In 2008, the people of Greenland passed a referendum supporting greater autonomy; 75% of votes cast were in favour. Greenland is the world's largest island, over three-quarters of which is covered by the only permanent ice sheet outside of Antarctica. With a population of about 56,480 (2013), it is the least densely populated country in the world.

This is my first Registered airmail from Greenland ! and one among the most expensive cover by postage rate. Greenland use Denmark postage rate. The cover posted on February 02, 2016 and I received on February 20, 2016. 


These two beautiful airmail covers from Greenland sent back from the Tasiilaq post office in Greenland. The covers posted on February 02, 2016 and I received on February 20, 2016. Thank You very much dear staff for the perfect covers.

The beautiful cover from the exotic Greenland arranged by my good friend Holger Kaufhold. The cover sent on September 04, 2013 and I received on September 14, 2013. Philately is one of the main income of Greenland, so they issue number of thematic stamps and other philatelic products every year. Thank You Holger for the perfect cover from Greenland.
