Definitions for North Jutlandic Island
North Jutlandic Island
The North Jutlandic Island, Vendsyssel-Thy, or simply Jutland north of the Limfjord are lesser-used names for the northernmost part of Denmark and of Jutland. It is more common to refer to the three traditional districts Vendsyssel, Hanherred and Thy. Although the area is separated from mainland Jutland by the Limfjord, it is traditionally regarded as a part of Jutland rather than an island. Geographically, it is the second largest island of Denmark after Zealand with a population of 302,546 as of 1 January 2010. Danes rarely refer to the area as a whole, but more often to the three constituent districts or to North Jutland. The adjectives nordenfjords and søndenfjords are commonly used, meaning north and south of the Fjord, respectively. The names can all be considered ad hoc creations, as a traditional name for the island as a geographical unity is lacking.
