Some random comments on reddit about Finnish Ace Hans Wind stands next to the cockpit of his Brewster B 239. Wind confirmed 75 air combat victories in World War II. August 26, 1943
- Actually the swastika is still in use in flags, coat of arms, etc. In the plane insignia it indeed was replaced by a blue-white cockade in 45.
- The Finnish Order of the Cross of Liberty is another big one to still use a swastika.
- Because the Allies ordered them to, with no small amount of threat, as I recall.
- Thank you for this, I didn't know this but knew the swastika was not always associated with the nazis.
- The way my parents have explained it is that Finns did what they had to do to save their country. The end result is that we have a longstanding dislike for Germans, Russians and Yanks. Because of WW II. Russians invaded, Germans "helped" but thoughtfully destroyed stuff as they left and the promised allied help never materialized. We hold a long grudge. But usually never speak of it.
- ... How are Canadians seen in Finland? crosses fingers "please say good, please say good...".
- Very good.
- Hi five! I'm down with Suomi! Love me some cross country!
- Sadly it's becoming a dying art here
- I know this comment is from several months ago, but I thought I'd chime in as a Canadian who moved to Finland. My personal experience in Finland has been amazing, whenever I'm heard speaking fluent English, I'm always asked where I'm from. And typically when they here my response they are pleasantly surprised. Some Fins seem to be less interested in Americans though (have some at my university).
- As a yank I'm continually impressed by the Finns. Tough bunch. Read more comments
