Iso 3166-2:fi

ISO 3166-2:FI is the entry for codes for the names of the principal subdivisions (e.g. provinces or states) of all countries coded in ISO 3166-1.

Currently for Finland, ISO 3166-2 codes are defined for 19 regions (under six Regional State Administrative Agencies plus Åland).

Each code consists of two parts, separated by a hyphen. The first part is FI, the ISO 3166-1 alpha-2 code of Finland. The second part is two numbers.

Åland (Finnish: Ahvenanmaan maakunta; Swedish: Landskapet Åland), an autonomous region of Finland (also a former province), is also officially assigned its own set of country codes in ISO 3166-1, with alpha-2 code AX.
