Åland: Åland sheep

Today I got seven postcards: one from the Åland Islands, one from Guernsey, four from Germany and one from Australia.

The card from the Åland Islands is a maxicard I ordered at Posten Åland, the postal authority of the Åland Islands. The card shows two Åland sheep. The Åland sheep is a rare breed of sheep endemic to the Åland Islands. The stamp was issued on 05-11-2014 and is from a set of two. They were created by Chinese students of the Swedish engraver Martin Mörck and celebrate the Year of the Sheep.

Go here to see the other card and the souvenir sheet.
