  • The design of this year’s franking labels is based on the graphic profile of the Åland anniversary year, and its slogan “A century of willfulness” is also the name of the series. On the franking labels, you will find many different types of symbols for Åland and Åland willfulness, such as museum ship Pommern and the Lågskär lighthouse and the characteristic Åland midsummer crown. The deer represents public Åland, while the swan is a flirt with Finland, the mother country. The peace sign alludes to the demilitarization. Åland creativity and nature interact in the dragonfly created from cutlery spoons. The four franking labels are self-adhesive, and a series consists of four labels with the four motifs. All four franking labels have the same value.
