Overview

Adopted: 25 November 1996. Ratio: 7:11. Capital: Kardla

from <www.mv.hiiumaa.ee>: Four lilies refer to the four municipalities. Rope is from a legend.

According to the monthly booklet released by my post stamp provider, the Estonian county of Hiiumaa has its own postal system (Hiiumaa Post). I don't know if this local post is a reality or a lure for philatelists like the putative stamps of the members of the Russian Federation. A local post administration could anyway make sense since Hiiumaa is an island.
The stamps are released in leaves which, for most of them, show in the border (but not on the stamps themselves) a fleur-de-lys encircled in a rope, with the knot below the fleur-de-lys. This symbol is clearly inspired by the arms of the county in which the rope is vertical and four fleur-de-lys are placed in each corner, respectively. My booklet is in black-and-white, so I don't know if the red colour of the elemnts of the arms is also used on the stamp leaves.
