Sports in Greenland
This great issue by POST Greenland is the third and final issue in the series Sports in Greenland, and the three stamps in this issue takes the series to a total of nine stamps. The entire series has been created by Miki Jacobsen, who has designed stamps for POST Greenland since 1992.
This issue focuses on the three characteristic Inuit or Dene sports with a long history - Arm Pull, Two Foot High Kick, and Pole Push. These sports all go back to an earlier era, where physical strength and endurance was of immense importance. The games were often played in the winter, when raging snowstorms and darkness ruled. The games worked as entertainment for the Inuit, but they were also a great way to train and maintain physical skills needed, such as precision, strength, and endurance.
Today the various games are included in the Arctic Winter Games, a bi-yearly event held in the Arctic region, where international competitors fight for glory. The event was held in Greenland in 2016, and it will take place in Canada's Northwestern Territories this year.
Arm Pull
The Arm Pull is a traditional tug-of-war game, where two competitors interlock legs and elbows. The objective is to pull the opponent over, or break the elbow lock.


This game requires high levels of power and strength in the athletes, and because of the simple setup, it can be played practically anywhere, making it an ideal game for the unruly winter.
Two Foot High Kick
This game, originating from Alaska, is highly technical and requires a great deal of skill to perfect. A target, often in the form of a seal skin ball, is suspended in the air. The athlete will have to walk or run up to the target, where he or she will jump off both feet, kick or touch the target with both feet, and land on both feet.


This task might not seem very difficult, but when the target is suspended at or above your own height, the difficulty suddenly increases. The Two Foot High Kick is very demanding and requires great balance in order to secure that the athlete lands properly. A popular alternative is the One Foot High Kick, where you jump on both feet, kick the target with one foot, and land on the same foot that was used for kicking. Both of these games requires high degrees of flexibility and control.
Pole Push
Here, two teams line up on either end of a pine pole, and by pushing the pole forward, try to force the other team out of a specified area. The winner is the team that manages to push the center of the pole over the outer barrier.


The game resembles classic tug-of-war, but with pushing instead of pulling, and a pole instead of a rope. The size of the teams can vary greatly, and ranges from 25 players on each team, to individuals competing against each other. The game requires both mental and physical capabilities, as it requires brute force as well as coordination within the team.
The stamps in this issue are denominated at DKK 0.50, DKK 14.50, and DKK 28.50 respectively, and they are available as individual stamps, in sheets of 10 stamps, and in a souvenir sheet. You can find find the stamps at POST Greenland's website.
As mentioned, this is the third and final issue in the Sports in Greenland series. You can find the first and second issue in the series here: Sports in Greenland I - Sports in Greenland II

The Environment in Greenland
Last year POST Greenland started a new series, focused on the environment, and how environmental changes affect Greenland. The second issue in this series is now out, and the two stamps are designed by the artist Gukki Naka, who makes his debut as a stamp artist with this issue.
Although environmental changes have been strongly linked to man-made greenhouse gas emissions for years, too little is being done to counter this. With its position in the Arctic, Greenland is one of the places on Earth, where climate changes are seen clearest. With temperatures rising globally, consequences are stark for the natural inhabitants of the Arctic.


The challenges are depicted in this stamp, where we see a Polar Bear swimming in the ocean, as the climate changes are taking away the ice that is essential for the life of the Polar Bear. The darkness of the stamp underlines the severity of the situation.

The rate of thawing that happens at the Greenlandic icecaps has doubled since 2008, and the rate has increased seven-fold since 1995. If the development is allowed to continue at this rate, soon there might no longer be ice in the Arctic during the summer. This will have global consequences due to rising sea levels.


The design of the second stamp in the set is named Fatamorgana, and speaks to the issue of massive ice thaw as well. The stamp depicts an iceberg in dark colors, and with several layers with different degrees of transparency. The effects make the iceberg seem as if it is shrinking in size, while warning of the ice-less future. Both stamps are very artistic in their expression, resulting in a beautiful, thought-provoking issue.
The stamps are only available as self-adhesive stamps, and they are denominated at DKK 20.00 and DKK 23.50 respectively. You can find the issue at Post Greenland's website.
As mentioned, this is part two of the Environment in Greenland series. you can find part one of the series here.

Greenlandic UNESCO World Heritage site
Last year UNESCO added the agricultural and cultural landscape of Kujataa in Southern Greenland to its World Heritage List. In celebration of this great honor, POST Greenland is issuing a beautiful stamp by the highly talented artist Aka Høegh, who has been living in Southern Greenland for decades.
UNESCO chooses to preserve sites of particular importance around the world, and all sites that are chosen to be part of the World Heritage List are recognized as having a unique and universal significance for current and coming generations from all areas of humanity.



Kujataa is the area of Greenland where Erik the Red first landed in the tenth century and commenced a 500-year Norse presence in Greenland. In this area, the Norsemen built a farming society with upwards of 3,000 inhabitants at its peak.
As the Inuit changed from being hunters to being farmers in the 20th century, they took over the fields of the Norse, and expanded from there. Kujataa was chosen as a World Heritage location based on the fact that the landscape includes exceptionally well-preserved ruins from the Norse settlements, and from the early agricultural lifestyle of the Inuit.
The stamp beautifully depicts one of the abandoned settlements, which sits in a green field, along with grazing sheep, and with the snowy mountains in the background. It signifies the historic importance of the area, as it is clear that just as the current inhabitants are using the land, it has been important for numerous centuries.
The stamp is denominated at 17.00 DKK and can be found at POST Greenland’s website.

Greenland during World War II - Part three
Since 2016, POST Greenland has been issuing a series of stamps that focus on Greenland during the Second World War, with a focus on how this was seen through the eyes of the Greenlanders. The series will consist of ten stamps in total when it is complete in 2020 – the 75th anniversary of the end of the Second World War.
The third part of the series is issued on October 22nd and consists of two stamps. The first of these stamps depicts one of the American air bases that were constructed in Greenland during the war.


The Allies needed airfields in Greenland, which would function as stop-over transits for American-produced airplanes for the British. The Americans were taking a hands-off approach to Greenland at the beginning, but as the U.S.A. was drawn into the war, the importance of having strategic airfields in Greenland grew to a critical point, and in July 1941, 500 US soldiers began construction of an airfield at Narsarsuaq in Southern Greenland. A few months later, a second US force arrived in Søndre Strømfjord in Western Greenland to build a second military airfield.
The stamp depicts an aerial photo of one of the Greenlandic airfields in the background, and a squadron of bombers in the foreground. The planes have been drawn onto the image and given various colors, clearly highlighting the planes in the stamp.
The stamp is denominated at 5.00 DKK and can be found at POST Greenland’s website.
Although Greenland played a role in the Second World War in different ways, Greenland was not directly affected by the heavy bombardments and hardship that occurred around most of the war-torn globe.


One of the side-effects of America establishing trade routes in Greenland was, that the Greenlandic people now had access to a range of mail-order services in the States, and were able to purchase all sorts of things that had been nearly impossible to get access to before the war, as all trade to Greenland was orchestrated from Copenhagen.
The second stamp depicts two Greenlandic couples dancing to the sound of music from an American record player, enjoying that they now had access to this. The background of the stamp consists of pages of American mail-order catalogues, showcasing the wonders of the Western consumer culture.
The stamp has a happy and lively feel to it, and it shows that not everything was horrible during the times of war.
The stamp is denominated at 20.50 DKK and can be found at POST Greenland’s website.

New franking labels
On October 22nd POST Greenland is issuing four beautiful new franking labels, featuring some of the most spectacular views that Greenland has to offer.
The photo of the northern lights originates from Narsaq, and it looks almost surreal if you haven’t experienced it in person. The mountain landscape was captured at Nanortalik, and showcases Greenland’s national flower, Niviarsiaq, in the foreground.
The image of the ice-filled fjord with the brown mountain in the background was taken in East Greenland, and the snowy winter landscape depicts Nuuk at dusk on the banks of the fjord.

Iconic Airplanes

The Concorde:
When it comes to famous passenger planes, there will always be two that come to mind – the Boeing 747 and the Concorde. Whereas the Boeing 747 helped make air travel more economical, the Concorde on the other hand offered supersonic flight that cut travel time by half. Capable of flying at speeds of 2,179 km/h, around twice the speed of sound, the Concorde flew elite passengers across the Atlantic in less than three and a half hours – a feat that takes regular jet airliners 8 hours.
The Concorde was jointly developed by Sud Aviation and the British Aircraft Corporation (BAC) under an Anglo-French treaty. It entered service in 1976 and continued to provide supersonic passenger travel for the next 27 years. Air France and British Airways were the only airlines to fly the Concorde. A round-trip ticket in 1997 from New York to London was $7,995. The high price per ticket in exchange for speed meant that only the wealthy could afford to fly in the Concorde.


In July 25, 2000, one of Air France’s Concorde encountered a fatal crash, killing all 100 passengers and 9 crew members on board, including 4 people on the ground. The cause of the crash was a metallic strip that had fallen from another plane. The fragment created a series of events during takeoff that eventually ended up causing the fuel tank to leak and catch fire. This was the beginning of the end of Concorde. On April of 2003, both Air France and British Airways simultaneously announced that they would be retiring their Fleet later that year.
You can see all Concorde stamps right here.

Air Force One:
Another iconic plane is the Air Force One. Although Air Force One is actually the official call sign that air traffic control use for the aircraft carrying the President of the United States, the one thing that comes to mind is the militarized version of the Boeing 747 called the Boeing VC-25.
The Air Force One was not always the Boeing 747 we have come to know. The type of plane used as Air Force One has always been the most technologically-advanced plane of that era. Of course, in our time today, the plane being used as Air Force One is the blue and white Boeing VC-25.


The looks of the Air Force One can be deceiving. On the outside, it may look just like a regular modern Boeing 747. However, on the inside, it is filled with technologically-advanced systems that not only help keep the POTUS safe, but also allow him to do many of his work while on board.
You can find the Air Force One stamp from above, right here.
