Åland is a small group of islands between Finland and Sweden. Formally, Åland belongs to Finland, but the entire population speaks Swedish and the islands enjoy a high degree of self rule and independence. Åland has its own national flag (pictured in Nordic countries) and is mentioned as a member of the Nordic countries, though not formally a country in its own right. The capital of Åland is Mariehamn.
