Time Zone

GMT - Summer (DST) EST (UTC+1) Faroe Islands NASA satellite image. The Faroe Islands or Faeroe Islands or simply Faroe(s) or Faeroes (Faroese: Fȹroyar, meaning "Sheep Islands", Danish: FȪrȹerne, Norwegian: FȪrȹyene, Old Norse/Icelandic: FȪreyjar) are a group of islands in Nrthern Europe, between the Norwegian Sea and the North Atlantic Ocean. They have been an autonomous province of the Kingdom of Denmark since 1948. The Faroese have, over the years, taken control of most matters except defence (though they have a native coast guard), foreign affairs and the legal system. These three areas are the responsibility of Denmark.

The Faroes have close traditional ties to Iceland, Norway, Shetland, Orkney, the Outer Hebrides and Greenland. The archipelago was politically detached from Norway in 1814. The Faroes are represented in the Nordic Council as a part of the Danish delegation.
