9 June - Aland Islands Day in Finland
While Åland is technically a part of Finland, it has its own parliament, flag, stamps, and license plates. It can pass its own laws in regards to health care, education, industry, and transport, but it still has to follow Finnish law for foreign affairs, criminal law, and customs. Swedish, not Finnish, is the official language of Åland, and all publication and documents sent to Åland must be in Swedish. Åland is also a part of the EU and the Nordic Council.
