Under the Autonomy Act Swedish is the only official language in Åland. This means, among other things, that Swedish is the language used by regional, municipal and State authorities in Åland. Publications and documents sent by Finnish Government agencies to Åland must also be in Swedish.

The language of tuition in publicly funded schools is also Swedish.
