Sineriak Bananeqarfik is Greenlandic for “Banana Coast”. That is the nickname of Greeland’s southern coast. Greenland has an ironic name, considering that most of Greenland’s 2,166,086 km2 (836,330 sq mi) of land consists of ice cap, the largest outside of Antarctica. However, the southern coast of Greenland truly has green vegetation and even trees. Being the southernmost part of Greenland, this is the warmest part of Greenland, specifically Kujalleq, a municipality (Greenland’s equivalent of a state, province, or county) in southern Greenland. No, bananas do not grow here, but it does have a milder (though still cold) climate than anywhere else in Greenland, suitable for raising sheep, a big part of Kujalleq’s economy.
