Sunrise in Ilulissat

This is part today's BBC Weather Forecast for Ilulissat, Greenland.  The small town of  Ilulissat, also known as Jakobshavn, is about half-way up the west coast of Greenland.  The thing that caught my eye in the forecast was that today sunrise and sunset both occur at 12:32 WGT (presumably West Greenland Time).  In other words, today the sun first peeps above the horizon following the long winter night.  Given that it is up for less than a minute, don't you think that the yellow sun symbol in the "Summary" column is a little misleading?
