I know about the Grimsey Island of Iceland which lies to the above of the Arctic Circle but it's too small to be visible by the naked eyes on a large map like this one and so I'm excluding it.

Since I won't be including Grimsey Island so there's no question about Kolbeinsey Island which only remains visible in low tides. For more information please refer to the Wikipedia article of Kolbeinsey Island.

Actually you missed iceland, which owns an island, which the arctic circle cuts through:

Grimsey Island is very small to be noticeable

A small part of the mainland of Iceland also extends north of the Arctic circle, at both the northwest and the northeast.

I'm afraid this is not true, but the caveat does not exclude Kolbeinsey, a remote rock 66 km north of Grímsey that belongs to Iceland and is heavily affected by erosion. So Iceland should still appear on the list. Why was it even excluded? Part of it lies north of the Arctic Circle and it belongs to the Arctic Council.

just put in an arrow to show Grimsey island. One of the things I like about jetpunk is that it takes into account the smallest oddities.

Any reason why you chose not to include Iceland?
+1
Level 51
Feb 14, 2023
It says that in the first comment. In summary, it's because the only part of Iceland within the Arctic Circle is too small to be visible with your eye and I'm pretty sure they don't know how to make an arrow or a circle around the island-or else they (SWATkun) just didn't include a circle for some other reason (I didn't ask them. They seem busy).
