It is the “war” between Denmark and Canada that has lasted from 1984 until today.
The two countries are ‘fighting’ over a small uninhabitable island called Hans Island.
War happens as follows:
Alternately, the two countries send their military to the small island to raise their own flag and eliminate their opponent’s.
Danes always leave a bottle of Danish liquor for Canadians, and Canadians leave a bottle of whiskey for Danes.
If that’s not the right way to resolve a conflict, I don’t know what is.
Since the 1930s, Hans Island has been in the middle of a disagreement between the two nations.
Hans Island is in the middle of the Kennedy Channel between Greenland and Ellesmere Island. A theoretical line in the middle of the strait goes through the island. Canada and Denmark could not come to terms on Hans Island in 1973 when a border treaty was signed, leaving a gap in its border description.
In 1984, Canada provoked Denmark by planting its flag on the island and leaving a bottle of Canadian whisky.
The Danish Minister of Greenland Affairs came to the island himself the same year with the Danish flag, a bottle of schnapps, and a letter stating “Welcome to the Danish Island”
