  • The stamp commemorates the 300th anniversary of the Great Northern War, one of the worst disasters to strike Åland. The stamp visualises the mass exodus and return to Åland. The islands were occupied by Russia in 1714, and the islanders fled to Sweden. After the peace treaty in 1721, most Ålanders returned to the devastated and fire-damaged island.
