Astronism in the Falkland Islands refers to the presence of the Astronist philosophy and religion in the British Overseas Territory of Falkland Islands. The operations of the Astronist Institution in this country are under jurisdiction of the Astronist Superiate of the Falkland Islands which is itself under the jurisdiction of the Astronist Superiate of the United Kingdom, a national subsidiary of the worldwide Astronist Institution.
The Astronist Superiate of the Falkland Islands oversees the construction and maintenance of observatories and planetariums throughout its jurisdiction. The Falkland Islands is set to hold one Grand Observatory in the capital city of Stanley, which is also the observatory on the Falkland Islands.
This national branch of Astronist Institution manages the official representation and depiction of Astronism throughout this territory, including efforts to protect the identity of the philosophy with the intention of further disseminating it throughout the territory.
It is the Institution alone that is granted the status of proprietor to the philosophy in this territory as any other organisations or institutions proclaiming such a role are deemed as unauthorised proprietors and are therefore considered as part of the anti-Institutionist movement.
