Landscapes from Åland 4.8.2006
Lemland is the southernmost municipality of the island, and is completely surrounded by sea. In the west Lemström channel separates Lemland from Jomala municipality and in the east Lumparsund from Lumparland municipality. With its 1700 inhabitants Lemland is the province's fastest growing municipality, thanks to nearness to Mariehamn. The stamp has a view of Söderby in Lemland, at dawn. A calm peaceful morning in November. The municipality is unilingually Swedish. During the Finnish War in 1808 the Swedish king Gustav IV Adolf had his headquarters in the Lemland parsonage. This pretty FDC was given to me by my dear friend Pia.
