Maritime education -cancelled

Åland Post highlights maritime education in Åland, which dates back to the 19th century. In 1854, Åland public educator and vicar of Finström Frans Petter von Knorring was able to introduce navigational education into the elementary school curriculum. The first proper nautical school that trained merchant skippers and sea captains opened in Mariehamn in 1874 and is celebrating its 150th anniversary in 2024.

Illustrator Rebecca Elfast describes the stamp: “The stamp depicts an anchor wrapped in a rope that curls into the shape of a heart - it encapsulates the pride of and love for maritime education and the sea”.
