Celebration for the entire country
Suomi 100, Leena Koskela
The centenary of independent Finland was a celebration for the entire nation. The celebration was coordinated by the Finland 100 project of the Prime Minister's Office, but the celebration was made together with many people, organisations and associations.
Statistics Finland carried out a Finland 100 follow-up study for the centenary project between from 2015 to 2018. Finns thought that
- The centenary was a success
- Celebration of independence was happier than before
- Feeling of togetherness in society increased
- Finland’s reputation in the world strengthened
