Germany: 125 Years Heligoland to Germany

Yesterday I received a special cover. 125 years ago, Britain gave up the North Sea archipelago Heligoland to Germany. The change of flags took place on August 10, 1890. From August 5-10 2015, the inhabitants of Heligoland will commemorate this with a cultural and historical week. The program includes a ceremony on Saturday, an exhibition, an evening with the traditional costumes from the last 200 years, a regatta of traditional boats and the pier festival on the last day of the festival.
