Hello!

Here are some photos taken in August in Helsinki. The Union of the Finnish War Veterans celebrated their 50'th anniversary.

Regards,

Now that is interesting. Knew that the Finnish swastikas pre-dated use (or perhaps more accurately - misuse) by the Nazis, and that they are a very wide-spread luck symbol (or sun symbol), fond across Europe, India and in North America. But exactly what caused Finland to adopt them, i didn't know.
