ÅLAND ~ Map ~

...My 3 card coming from Åland...a great map with nice stamp and special cancellation! Thanks a lot Sini!

Åland consists of 6,757 islands situated midway between Sweden and Finland. Although the people of Åland speak Swedish, this autonomous territory is part of Finland.

Åland has its own flag, has issued its own postage stamps since 1984, runs its own police force, and is a member of the Nordic Council.
