Saami MapSpmi - Saamiland is not a sovereign state but a region which for thousands of years has been inhabited by the Saami people. Spmi crosses the borders of five nations.

Spmi is populated by approximately 85,000 Saami of which 20,000 live in the Swedish portion. The Saami see themselves as a people with their own culture, language and way of life. In the Saami world view, man and nature are inseparable. The name "Spmi" can be interpreted as "Saami", "people" or "Samiland".

Since 1986, the Saami have had a common flag and a national song.
