  • With a postage stamp illustrating Åland’s path to autonomy, we join the celebration of the centennial year of Åland autonomy that starts on 9 June 2021 and culminates on 9 June 2022. In the stamp, we see two of the leaders of the Åland Movement, Julius Sundblom and Carl Björkman, and the Council of the League of Nations announcing its decision in the matter of the Åland dispute in Geneve, June 1921. The stamp sheet is adorned by two mountain pines, symbolizing Åland self-will and stubbornness, so typical to the islanders, artist Jonas Wilén explains.
