"Nuna asiilasooq" ("The Land of Great Length") is a national anthem of Greenland used by the self-governing Kalaallit Inuit people of Greenland.

"Nuna asiilasooq" was officially recognised by the government in 1979. Both lyrics and melody were composed by Jonathan Petersen, who wrote the musical score for Greenland's 1916 anthem, "Nunarput utoqqarsuanngoravit."[1]
