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
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.
This could become a new tradition 🙂 #firework #helsinki #independenceday #finland
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
Surely the 100th anniversary of the Republic of Finland is next year..
Finland 100 will last until the 200th anniversary of Finland’s independence.
