Faroe Islands ( Denmark)
Paleontology related stamps (origin of earth)
is an island country comprising an archipelago of small islands between
the Norwegian Sea and the North Atlantic Ocean, approximately halfway
between Norway and Iceland, 320 kilometres north-northwest of
Scotland. The area is approximately 1,400 square kilometres with a 2015
population of 48,700. The islands are an autonomous country within the
Kingdom of Denmark. The archipelago is very rugged and has an
extremely moderated subpolar oceanic climate that is windy, wet, cloudy
and cool year round. In spite of its northerly latitude, temperatures
average above freezing year round.
Between 1035 and 1814, the Faroe Islands were part of the Kingdom of
Norway. The 1814 Treaty of Kiel granted Denmark control over the
islands, along with two other Norwegian regions: Greenland and Iceland.
The Faroe Islands have been a self-governing country within the Danish
Realm since 1948
