Greenland Self Governance


I was fortunate enough to be in Nuuk, the capital of Greenland on June 21st 2009- midsummer’s day, when Greenland celebrates its National Day. There was further cause for celebration – following a referendum last year, Greenland has decided on ‘self governance’ and on June 21st moved from ‘home rule’ to a new state of autonomy from Denmark. Here’s some of my images…

Dignitaries attending the ceremony included members of the Danish Royal Family, Queen Margareth, Crown Princess Frederik, and Crown Princess Mary, as well as Danish Prime Minister Rasmussen and the Icelandic president Olafur Ragner Grimsson.
