Nordic House: National CostumesEdit

On 7 May 1983 opened the Nordic House in the Faroes (Norðurlandahúsið í Føroyum). This is the cultural center of the Nordic Council in the Faroes and at the same time one of the most exciting modern buildings in Scandinavia. This stamp issue shows the National costumes of the nine Nordic nations (Sápmi and Greenland had no reckognized flags at that time).
