About Sweden Finns Day
February 24th is ‘Sverigefinnarnas’ Day, (Sweden Finns Day) – the day that celebrates the roughly half-million people who live in Sweden and have Finnish as their mother tongue.
In 2000, the Sweden Finns were recognised as an official national minority group in Sweden. In fact, the Sweden Finns are the largest national minority group in Sweden.
In 2007, a flag was designed which combines the Swedish and the Finnish colours.
