Uummannaq Town Harbour, Greenland

Uummannaq harbour. Like all towns in Greenland, there seems to be a very high level of boat ownership.

We were much entertained by the possible meanings of the sign, though a little investigation finds that it is Danish for "knots". Greenland is a part of the Kingdom of Denmark and Danish is widely spoken.
