A little bit of history

Although one might assume that the Faroe Islands were a natural home to the Vikings of Scandinavia, there is evidence that it was first settled by Irish monks who reached the islands in small round boats made of wickerwork by paddling for days. When Norwegian settlers arrived on a quest to find new land to farm, they had to flee and the Faroe Islands became part of the kingdom of Norway. When Denmark and Norway were joined under a single monarch in the late 14th century, the countries' overseas territories fell under Danish rule, including the one featured in Faroe Islands wall murals. It took until 1816 though for direct rule from Denmark, who granted the Faroese two seats in the Danish Parliament and Danish became the official language on the islands. Support for real independence rises and wanes according to economic times, but why change a winning formula? Faroe Islands wall murals are proof that the system works.
