Faroe stamp 016 merkid, the faroese flag.jpg

The Faroe Islands issued their first stamps January 30, 1975; as the isles are an independent part of Denmark, Danish stamps were used on the isles previously.

From a philatelist point of view, there are earlier occasions in the postal history of the Faroe Islands, but the first stamps came in 1975.
