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.
