Amerikansuomalaiset is the Finnish word for Finnish Americans.
Siniristilippu is the Finnish word for the Finnish flag.
Duluth is one of the few towns in the United States with a notable Finnish population. I’ve seen this car previously, but just had to take a photo tonight. It was like the car was right in front me saying “I’m proud of my Finnish Heritage.” The Finnish flag is a blue cross against a white background.
Currently, more than one third of Duluth population, which identifies as from European ancestry trace that ansectory to Finland.
From Wikipedia: (In Duluth) For decades, a Finnish-language daily newspaper, Päivälehti, was published in the city; it was named after the former Grand Duchy of Finland‘s pro-independence leftist paper. The Finnish community of Industrial Workers of the World(IWW) members published a widely read labor newspaper Industrialisti. From 1907 to 1941, the Finnish Socialist Federation and then the IWW operated Work People’s College, an educational institution that taught classes from a working-class, socialist perspective.
