For the first time in living memory, the two sports clubs came together to carry out a shared project, and they cooperated wonderfully. We managed to create a real 1920s feel at the stadium and the competitors and spectators had a blast. We received a lot of positive feedback, and people wanted to know if we were going to do something similar in the future.
A great country! 🇫🇮 Well worth celebrating! 👏👏❤️
I have a marketing ban on my phone to make sure that I don’t make any impulse purchases, but as soon as I received the text, I bought a #Finland100 toilet brush, though the old one would do.
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.
Bishop Irja Askola, Finland 100 commentary, 30 November 2016
It’s fun to read these comments. There seem to be Finns all over the world! Happy Independence Day to all of us! We are lighting candles in Tokyo also ✨
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.
As the public has been mobilised by positive ways and events, could this be continued? The next 100 years of Finland?
It’s wonderful how much Finland is being celebrated. The world seems to think a lot of our country
It was great to be involved under the Finland 100 umbrella, as it gave credibility to our events and also boosted the enthusiasm of the participants: we felt that the work was important!
Best country in the world. Safe and honest and even humble. My birthplace and very proud to be a Finn.
