Identifier for the UTC
UTC±00:00 : blue ( January ), orange ( July ), yellow ( year-round ), faint blue ( sea areas ) UTC±00:00 is an identifier for a time offset from UTC of +00:00. In ISO 8601, an case of the consort fourth dimension would be written as 2019-02-07T23:28:34+00:00. It is besides known by the following mnemonic or diachronic names :

  1. The westernmost point where UTC with no DST is applied is Bjargtangar, at the northwest peninsula of Iceland (24°32′ W). Time used there is 1 hour and 38 minutes ahead of physical time. This is the greatest deviation from physical time for UTC+00:00 with no DST.

european winter european summer Since legal, political, social and economic criteria, in summation to physical or geographic criteria, are used in the draw of time zones, actual clock zones do not precisely adhere to prime lines. The UTC+00:00 time zone, were it determined strictly by longitude, would consist of the area between meridians 7°30’W and 7°30’E. however, in much of western and Central Europe, despite lying between those two meridians, UTC+01:00 is used ; similarly, there are european areas that use UTC, even though their physical clock time zone is UTC−01:00 ( e.g. most of Portugal ), or UTC−02:00 ( the westernmost contribution of Iceland ). Because the UTC+00:00 time zone in Europe is at its western edge, Lowestoft in the United Kingdom, at merely 1°45’E, is the easternmost settlement in Europe in which UTC+00:00 is applied .

Countries and areas west of 22°30’W ( “ physical ” UTC−02:00 ) that use UTC+00:00 [edit ]

  • The westernmost part of Iceland, including the northwest peninsula (the Westfjords) and its main town of Ísafjörður, which is west of 22°30’W, uses UTC+00:00. Bjargtangar, Iceland is the westernmost point in which UTC is applied.
