Today is Greenland’s national day, and for the first time in history the country’s flag will this year be flown from all 534 of the official state flagpoles across Denmark. The date was purposely chosen to coincide with the longest day of the year, when the sun hardly sets in most of the country and festivities can last all day and night.
