Information about Fámjin

By Verified Expert

The village Famjin is looking directly out to the harsh North Atlantic Ocean. Famjin is partly protected by a stone reef, which becomes visible at low tide.

The village is surrounded by the beautiful natural scenery of the highest mountains, Gluggarnir, on Suðuroy. There are several inland lakes and waterfalls above the village.

Fámjin is home to the first ever Faroese flag. The white, blue, and red flag is displayed in the local church in Fámjin.

The Faroese flag was designed by the local student Jens Olivur Lisberg. He died young and is buried next to the church.
