Denmark and Iceland

In connection with your section on Bornholm, I should just like to point out that Iceland is certainly not part of Denmark. It has been a unitary parliamentary republic since June 17th 1944, following the plebiscite of May 1944 in which 97% of the population voted to terminate the country's personal union with Denmark, which had existed since 1918.

Kind regards,Andy Dixon, Poland.

Hi Andy,

Thanks for your comment, but I believe you misread the information I wrote on that page. I was referring to the Faroe Islands. The Iceland reference was in relationship to the location of the Faroe Islands as being between Iceland and Scotland. Can see how it could be misleading. Will rewrite that portion to make it clearer.

I am well aware that Iceland is longer part of the Danish empire, yet we still hold close ties to Iceland and their people.

Again, thanks for your comments. Always appreciated.

Charlie
