Current GOAL

Please drop this item in rural OR Premium Member Only caches.  Do not place it in an urban cache or abandon it at a caching event.  Transport the bug in the original plastic bag for as long as the bag lasts; the bag keeps the trackable clean and prevents tangling with other items.  Otherwise, take the travel bug anywhere you wish.  No permission is needed to leave the U.S.

Travel bug photos in the logs are appreciated.  I will re-post them here, where they can be seen by other cachers.

About This Item

Patch of the flag of Greenland.  The flag of Greenland was designed by Greenland native Thue Christiansen.  It features two equal horizontal bands of white (top) and red with a large disk slightly to the hoist side of center.  The top half of the disk is red, the bottom half is white.  It is the only Nordic flag without a Nordic Cross.
 
In 1978, Denmark granted home rule to Greenland, making it an equal member of the Rigsfællesskab. The home rule government held an official call for flag proposals, receiving 555. The deciding committee came to no consensus, so more proposals were solicited.  Finally the present red-and-white design by Christiansen narrowly won over a green-and-white Nordic cross by a vote of fourteen to eleven.  Christiansen's red-and-white flag was officially adopted on 21 June 1985.
 
Christiansen described the white stripe as representing the glaciers and ice cap, which cover more than 80% of the island; the red stripe, the ocean; the red semicircle, the sun, with its bottom part sunk in the ocean; and the white semicircle, the icebergs and pack ice. The design is also reminiscent of the setting sun half-submerged below the horizon and reflected on the sea. The colors of the flag are the same as those of the Dannebrog, symbolising Greenland's place in the Danish realm.
