Suomen lipun historia

The Finnish flag has come a long way since the first Finnish proto-flag was introduced in This picture introduces nine selected flag designs from over the years but in reality there are many.

The looped square symbol has made an appearance in numerous ancient objects found in Northern Europe. In Finnish it's called Käpälikkö (pawform) or Hannunvaakuna (Saint John's Arms). In Estonian the symbol is known as Aasruut (loopsquare), Nelinurk (quadrangle) or Võlusõlm (magic knot).

Suomen kieli on rikas kieli. Finska språket är ett rikt språk.

I don't know how accurate the cultural translation is, but to avoid all the conjugations, simple is good. And every Finn I met was pretty conservative with words.

"Huopatossut" - the Finnish felt boots.Put on the Valenki boots made in Finland and you are not cold.

Just about everyone in Hyennan old enough to walk wears felted wool boots to go outside in the deep winter. This is an example of the kind a lower-middle class person might wear (the cheapest ones are grey, undyed wool).

My people. A joke for and about Finns: "How can you tell if a Finn is an extrovert?" <pause> "S/he is looking at *your* shoes." (still looking at feet....but not own feet. Finnish slay.)

It's not that suprising! Cause we actually have a very high education level and stuff but everybody thinks that we're just a random country where's nothing else than woods.

No matter what they say, in reality Finnish is simple & easy ;D
