Uppland is a historical province or landskap on the eastern coast of Sweden, just north of Stockholm, the capital. It borders Södermanland, Västmanland and Gästrikland. It is also bounded by lake Mälaren and the Baltic sea. It has an extremely short and strangely shaped land border with Åland, an autonomous province of Finland, on the small uninhabited island of Märket in the Baltic.

The name literally means up land, a name which is commonly encountered in especially older English literature. Its Latinised form, which is occasionally used, is Uplandia.

The traditional provinces of Sweden serve no administrative or political purposes, but are historical and cultural entities. The corresponding administrative county, or län, is Uppsala County, which occupies the larger part of the territory. The bulk of the population, however, is within Stockholm County. Minor parts of the province are also in Västmanland County, Gävleborg County and Södermanland County.

Arms granted in 1560. Historically Uppland ranked as a duchy and the coat of arms is represented with a dukal coronet. Blazon: “Gules, a Royal Orb Or gemmed of the field and Azure with the cross bottoned Argent.” Despite the fact that the Uppsala län has a different name and a smaller territory it was granted the same coat of arms in 1940.

Uppland was historically divided into chartered cities and districts. Within Roslagen they were called skeppslag (which roughly means “ship district”), and in the rest of the province hundreds. The abovementioned districts and cities have no administrative function today.
