    Non of them "belong" to Denmark, However Iceland is no longer a part of the united kingdom of Denmark.

    The Kingdom of Iceland (Icelandic: Konungsríkið Ísland; Danish: Kongeriget Island) was a sovereign and independent country with a constitutional and hereditary monarchy that was established by the Act of Union with Denmark signed on 1 December 1918. It lasted until 17 June 1944.

    Greenland is Danish territory. For several hundred years, Iceland was ruled by a joint union between Denmark and Norway.

    Somewhat, in a complicated manner. Iceland was once part of Norway. But in the middle age, Norway and Denmark were like joined kingdoms.

    And Groenland is still part of Denmark.
