Template: Infobox Island / Maintenance / area missing

The Franklin Island ( Danish Franklin Ø) is a Greenlandic island.

She is one of three islands in the Kennedy Channel, a part of the Naresstraße extending between the Canadian Ellesmere Island and northern Greenland.

The other two islands are the Crozier Island and Hans Island.

The uninhabited, vegetation-free island is the largest of the three islands and is located approximately 5 km north of Greenland's mainland (Cape Constitution ). The relatively flat island falls on the coasts steeply. On the eastern side, it rises to a height of 215 m.

It was named after the British explorer John Franklin ( 1786-1847 ).
