Not every land dispute ends up in brutal war.

Hans Island is 0.5 miles square and sits right on the Canadian/Greenland borderline.

Both Canada and Denmark claim it as their own.

Every so often, the Canadian and Danish send soldiers there, to take down the other country's flag.

And to leave a bottle of Canadian Whiskey or Danish Schnapps there, for the other country's soldiers.
