This combination of the German and Hitler's iron cross, only blue, plus a yellow swastika, is called the "Cross of Freedom". This must be said to be a bit Orwellian "1984" newspeak. This flag was following another similar one, and adopted 26 May 1978. It is still the official president flag of Finland. The "Cross of Freedom" is the oldest order in Finland and the president is it's Grand Master. The swastica has been used by fascist, populist/völkischer, nationalist and/or nazi elements in Finland as well as in Germany at least since ca the First World War. The Finnish Air Force used it related to the Second World War. We, the Finnish anarchists, have a boycott against this flag, because it is a shame for our country, as the symbol is strongly connected to brown ochlarchy and rule by terror world wide, and will never be interpreted in a positive, libertarian way, as long as mankind lives on planet Earth and outer space.
