Aland Islands – Geopolitical Anomaly

Share/Bookmark


Aland is the smallest of the three Nordic autonomous territories with a population of 28,000. One third of the population lives in the capital, Mariehamn. The glorious Ă…land archipelago is a geopolitical anomaly: the islands belong to Finland, speak Swedish, but have their own parliament, fly their own blue-gold-and-red flag, issue their own stamps and have their own web suffix. Their special relationship with the EU means they can sell duty free and make their own gambling laws.
