Serve coffee, hoist a flag, illuminate
The Finland 100 centenary year is unique in Finland’s history, and all kinds of festivities in its honour are welcome. Take part in the celebration with these three national deeds.
Work places and communities are encouraged to organise a blue and white coffee break for employees, customers, or friends on Independence Day Eve.
Let’s dress up the 100-year-old with Finland 100 centenary flags and decorations before the birthday. On Independence Day Eve the Finnish flag will be flown in every Finnish flagpole. The flagging continues overnight until Independence Day evening. The flag should be illuminated during the night.
Municipalities and cities in Finland are encouraged to light up central and symbolic buildings and venues with blue and white light. Create a blue and white lighting also at work and at home.
