Amazing project! Thank you to everyone who took part ❤️
Shared values are at the core of our success story. The year marking the 100th anniversary of Finland’s independence is a good and fitting time to evaluate the Finnish values of today as building blocks for the future.
Professor and historian Martti Häikiö, Finland 100 commentary, 8 September 2016
An old saying from the early 2000s: if you hear Sandstorm playing when seeing in the New Year, it will be a happy one
A great country! 🇫🇮 Well worth celebrating! 👏👏❤️
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.
Cheers! I love you, I love Finland! Forgive my poor grammar…USA gal.
What happened to a good debate? It’s increasingly rare to see trust in democracy in a political debate. It’s easy to notice the increasing polarisation of opinions, but more difficult to find a genuine dialogue.
Journalist Olav S. Melin, Finland 100 commentary on 30 March 2017
VR offered train passengers free coffee and chocolates, and a text message reminded us of the big day. I can see a winter scene through the train window, and the sun is shining.
It’s a great day to have a birthday. Congratulations, my 100-year-old country. Let’s play some Sibelius!
What a great opening party and fantastic atmosphere! Thank you!!!
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
