Greenland National Day

Greenland National Day

June 21
The people of Greenland celebrate National Day on June 21, the longest day of the year. They call the holiday Ullortuneq in Greenlandic, which means "the longest day." They celebrate the occasion with communal picnics, shows, and many cultural activities. Since Greenland's current flag was formally instituted on June 21, 1985, they also honor the national flag on this day.
