Finland's flag, often known as the “Blue Cross Flag,” is white with a blue Nordic cross representing Christianity. The national flag is based on the Scandinavian cross, which appears on the flags of the other Scandinavian countries. The blue signifies the country's thousands of lakes and the sky, while the white represents the snow that blankets the land in winter.
For centuries, this color combination has been employed in numerous Finnish provincial, military, and town flags. The coat of arms appears in the center of the Finnish state flag, which is otherwise identical to the civil flag.
The military uses the swallow-tailed state flag, while the presidential standard is similar to the state flag but incorporates the Cross of Liberty in the upper left corner. Finland's flag was chosen upon the country's independence from Russia and has remained unchanged since then.
