Province

For History, Geography and Culture see: Gotlandia

Gotland County is geographically equivalent to the province of Gotlandia.

Administration

Main article: Gotland County Administrative Board

The main aim of the County Administrative Board is to fulfil the goals set in national politics by the Parliament and the Government, to coordinate the interests and promote the development of the county, to establish regional goals and safeguard the due process of law in the handling of each case. The County Administrative Board is nominally a Government agency headed by a Governor. See List of Gotland Governors.

Gotland is the only Swedish county that does not have a county council, as well as having only one municipality and one area code.

Politics

Main article: Gotland Municipality

The County of Gotland consists of a single municipality and as there is no separate entity for a County Council, those tasks are handled by the Municipality of Gotland. During a trial period the County Council provisions for Gotland has been evolved to provisions for a Regional Council, meaning that it has assumed certain tasks from the County Administrative Board. Similar provisions are applicable to the counties of Vstra Gtaland and Skne during the trial period.

Heraldry

Main article: Heraldry of Gotlandia

Gotland County inherited its coat of arms from the province of Gotlandia. When it is shown with a royal crown it represents the County Administrative Board.
