About the Flag

At http://www.keskisuomi.fi/english/symbols.html the Regional Council of Central Finland shows the flag and arms of Central Finland.
Phil Nelson, 15 December 2002


The flag of Central Finland is obviously a banner of arms, thus showing a black grouse on a white field.

The image of the flag [presented on this page] is based on the image from the above-mentioned official page.

About the Pennant

As is usual in Finland, the pennant is made with just one point fastened to the halyard, thus making it most suitable to hang straight down, and able to swing around so that the black or the red field appears to be on top (cf. the discussion about "husband flags").

According to my fiancée Heidi (who is Finnish), this kind of pennant is used by ordinary people and raised to show that they are at home. Isännänviiri means something like "husband pennant"; viiri is Finnish for pennant. The Swedish word is husbondsvimpel.
