ABOUT FAROE ISLANDS 

The Faroe Islands or simply Faroes (Faroese: Føroyar, meaning "Sheep Islands") are a group of islands in Northern Europe, between the Norwegian Sea and the North Atlantic Ocean, about halfway from Iceland to Norway. They have been an autonomous region of the Kingdom of Denmark since 1948. The Faroese have, over the years, taken control of most matters except defence (they have a small organized native military in Mjørkadalur, including a small police force and coast guard) and foreign affairs, which are the responsibility of Denmark.
The Faroes have close traditional ties to Iceland, Shetland, Orkney, the Outer Hebrides and Greenland.The archipelago was detached from Norway in 1814. The Faroes are represented in the Nordic Council as a part of the Danish delegation.
