East Greenland Time (EGT)The differences between time zones to each other are always specified in relation to the "Universal Time Coordinated" (UTC), the time on the prime meridian (zero longitude). Phoenix, for example, is on the 122nd degree of longitude west and thus in the UTC-7 time zone. East Greenland Time is consistent with UTC -1.
Countries with the East Greenland Time, in which a switch to daylight savings time is common, turn the clock forward by one hour in summer. By doing so, they switch to Eastern Greenland Summer Time (EGST) and reach UTC +0.
The East Greenland Time applies only to some parts of Greenland.

Further Countries in the same timezone of UTC -1Although the timezone is named "East Greenland Time", it is mostly for politcal reasons. It simply means that, e.g., the beginning and ending of daylight savings time always apply here uniformly. There are some other countries, in which the clock strikes the same hour. These countries have the same temporal distance to UTC (Universal Time Coordinated):
