Finnish Flag (kalinppu)

December 18, 2007 Leave a comment Go to comments

Do you know why there is blue cross across white lines in the flag of finland ? Well i didn’t knew this when i came here some 4 months ago. This is becasue there are many lakes in finland. It is also know as the country of thousand lakes. The color of lakes or water is taken as blue and the same color is kept in the national flag of finland. The white color also says that one of the highest snowing contry so the combination of white and blue is what the Finnish flag has got. May be it is also because of the fact that finnish people are very humble, shy and helpful in each aspects.

Just come to finland and ask something ! But be prepared for not hearing any thing from the finnish men you are talking with. This is because if they know english they will tell you where to go and what to do but if they do not know how to speak in english they will rather be silent.

Lakes in finland is teaching every finnish people how to behave and how to deal with the reality of life. Silence is the best assest these people have, which is refreshing and encoraging.
