List of people on stamps of the Faroe Islands

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.
