I’ll light a candle for my father and uncles and for the hundreds of heroes who defended and died in the name of independence
Could they organise transport from the sticks to this event?
Sharing the Finland 100 brand with so many projects diminished the value of its message. Our large-scale project was buried beneath numerous small ones. This meant that we were unable to provide our partners with added value in the form of Finland 100 collaboration.
At this moment, looking into the future is truly important, and the theme of the centenary, together, is especially current.
Former Member of Parliament and minister Elisabeth Rehn, Finland 100 commentary, 24 August 2017
Thank you for the brand! The Finland 100 concept itself was the most important source of support for us. The common logo and status gave even the smallest project coordinators access to the best resources for their events.
Thank you and happy Independence Day to all Finns all over the world!! Even though I have been away for a long time, my heart will always be in Finland.
It was fantastic and a real success. Organisations both small and large got involved. Huge enthusiasm. An experience that will remembered for a lifetime. The theme ‘Together’ was excellent.

I’ll go to a smoke sauna on Lake Kuusijärvi with my friends, and we’ll swim 100 metres in the lake to celebrate Finland’s independence
The centenary of our independence is an amazing vantage point. This is exactly what we need: a clear view into the great arches of our own history as well as the stories forgotten under the jubilee events.
