Well-known local artist Mr. Urmas Orgussaar created a sundial in 2015 and installed this just in front of his home. We can see the beauty of Prangli's nature in his paintings. Estonian president Lennart Meri has thought that the name Wrangö, Swedish name for Prangli, came from the early vikings, who used to control this island during the ancient times. Or maybe the name comes from the German word Wrangelsholm, implying on the devious coastal line of the island. Admirers of the Finnish heritage say that Wrangö comes from the Finnish word ranta, implying on the island on the horizon. Prangli Island was first mentioned on the sea maps in 1387 as Rango.
