Finnish air force removes swastika

The Finnish Air Force quietly dropped a swastika from the official logo of its Air Force Command and replaced it with a golden eagle after a century.

While the use of a swastika in the Air Force Command's insignia dates back to before Nazi Germany, the change occurred to avoid confusion and false associations.

"Undeniably, we've had to explain from time to time the history of the (Finnish Air Force) swastika that dates back to 1918," said Brig. Gen. Jari Mikkonen at Air Force Command Finland. "It caused misunderstandings with our foreign partners, so continuing to use it was considered inappropriate and unnecessary."
