Google Doodle for Finland National Day 2015

Dec 6, 2015

Finland National Day 2015

Today is itsenäisyyspäivä, Finland's Independence Day. Doodler Alyssa Winans and her colleague in Helsinki illustrated today's design with a cozy-looking home flying the siniristilippu (blue-cross flag).

Many Finns do indeed stay indoors for this holiday: they gather around televisions to watch a national broadcast of Tuntematon sotilas (The Unknown Soldier), a film based on the novel by Väinö Linna

They're also entertained by live coverage of the Independence Day Reception, an annual event at the Presidential Palace that honors veterans and attracts glamorous guests. 

This year, the chosen theme for the party was "culture". And to that, we raise our glasses. Kippis!
