The dispute between Canada and Denmark territorial claims over the Hans Island has been periodically solved with military intervention to remove the flag depending on which of the nations makes a claim.. The dispute is always settled with leaving a bottle of Danish Schnapps or Canadian Whiskey..



Hans Island (Greenlandic: Tartupaluk; Inuktitut:; French: Île Hans; Danish: Hans Ø) is a small, uninhabited barren knoll measuring 1.3 km2 (0.5 sq mi), 1,290 metres (0.80 mi) long and 1,199 metres (0.745 mi) wide, located in the centre of the Kennedy Channel of Nares Strait—the strait that separates Ellesmere Island from northern Greenland and connects Baffin Bay with the Lincoln Sea. Hans Island is the smallest of three islands located in Kennedy Channel; the others are Franklin Island and Crozier Island. The strait is 35 kilometres (22 mi) wide here, placing the island within the territorial waters of both Canada and Denmark. A theoretical line in the middle of the strait goes through the island.

Well both side's are literally good guy's and nice people, it also explains why and how the dispute is ongoing, the Canadian's want the Schnapps and the Danes want the whisky
and it is good fun as well, something lively and humorous to do in the cold north.

Anyway as long as there is no significant natural resource there this is just friendly fun and I like this, I bet you it is good brand schnapps and whisky they trade as well.

If only the Arctic shelf and the argument with Russia could be so easily resolved.


Nice story and something other than Brexit.

Just waiting for China to build a "peaceful airport" on it.

Thing is. Democracies don't tend to fight. They have political tiffs, but no fighting.

Actually, it does relate back to undersea resources...and I think that is also why our former 'Dear Leader' shut down the study of Norse archaeological sites on Baffin Island.

Ahh which would if proven support the Danish claim to sovereign territorial claim since they claimed and even settled it first before modern map's were drawn up without consulting them?.

Very good information thank you.

If you're up on these things you'll note that while Steve was doing this, and shutting Pat Sutherland out of her office at the Canadian Museum of History...it was full speed ahead on the search for the Franklin expedition.
Things that make you go "Hmmmmm."

It's more complicated. The US and Norway also are claiming rights.
