Other flags in Porvo

In 1809 present day Finland was taken from Sweden and made a Grand Duchy under the Emperor of Russia. The first parliament for the new country was held in Porvo. In 2009, special "flags" were raised along the streets of Porvo to commemorate this. Information about this is available in Swedish at and images can be seen in a pdf file at

The man protrayed on the flags is Baron Robert Wilhelm De Geer who was planning the event in 1809 and was elected land marshal (i.e. speaker) of the house of the nobility.

The flags were designed by graphic artist Paula Jääskeläinen.
