Flag of Finland

Minttu from Finland sent me this great card of the Finnish flag. According to Wikipedia the blue coloring is said to represent the country's thousands of lakes and the sky, with white for the snow that covers the land in winter. This color combination has also been used over the centuries in various Finnish provincial, military, and town flags.

Thank you Minttu!
