    It's not Swedish, but Faroese.

    I only know little Faroese, but I'm pretty sure the text besides the grey box says "independent," which would make sense considering the countries in the grey areas at that time in the history. I'm however absolutely sure about the other texts, which says, from the top and down: France, Britain, Portugal, Germany, Belgium, Spain and Italy.

    Yes. Both Liberia and Ethiopia, which both are in the grey areas, were independent in 1914, so it makes perfectly sense. If you still aren't completely sure however, you should better wait around for a native Faroese speaker.

    No, this will do, It makes perfect sense. Thank you very much, Foygl for your help! :)

    Judging by its similarity to Faroese's closest relative Icelandic, I agree.

    sjálfstæði (n)

    1. (óhæði) independence
    2. (sjálfræði) autonomy, freedom
    3. (sjálfsbjörg) self-reliance

    And "land" translates "country" in both languages.
