Various badges for Lotta Svärd, Finnish women's voluntary defense organisation. The blue swastika was used as a symbol of Finland by both Lotta Svärd the Finnish airforce and the Finnish state, first used as such by the artist Akseli Gallen-Kallela, who designed the national heraldic symbol of Finland as a free nation in 1917, using the blue swastika. It was removed after the symbol had become too associated with Nazi Germany during WWII. Lotta Svärd was banned by the Soviet Union in 1944.
