Àland Post's 2009 Issuing Program

The first stamp of thè year will be issued 22 January when we present a miniature sheet to celebrate thè fact that Aland has had electricity for 100 years.

The miniature sheet is also part of thè joint project "Preserve thè Polar Regions and Glaciers" in which some 40 postai administrations around thè world take part, each issuing a miniature sheet on thè same theme.

The photographer Daniel Eriksson's artistically composed photograph shows a wind turbine. On thè same day, we issue thè stamp New border - new times by Cecilia Mattsson. The stamp commemorates thè 200th anniversary of thè events in 1809 leading to Aland and Finland becoming part of thè Russian empire. The stamp features a boundary post placed at thè new border in thè Sea of Aland. This particular boundary post can now be seen at Aland's Museum.
