ISO 3166-2:GL is the entry for Greenland in ISO 3166-2, part of the ISO 3166 standard published by the International Organization for Standardization (ISO), which defines codes for the names of the principal subdivisions (e.g., provinces or states) of all countries coded in ISO 3166-1.

Currently for Greenland, ISO 3166-2 codes are defined for 4 municipalities. The Northeast Greenland National Park and the Thule Air Base, which are unincorporated and not part of any municipality, are not listed.

Each code consists of two parts, separated by a hyphen. The first part is GL, the ISO 3166-1 alpha-2 code of Greenland. The second part is two letters.
