What is Finland's motto?


Last updated

Do you mean the competition "A motto for Europe", which was arranged by French journal Ouest France? Finland's suggestion was "Perheenä Eurooppa - kotina maailma". In English: Our family is Europe - our home is the world. Finland as a country has no official motto. Sometimes we use three words beginning with S :"Sisu, Sauna and Sibelius" . Sisu is hard to translate, it is something like courage and perseverance, sauna is the Finnish bath and Sibelius is the famous Finnish composer. But this saying is informal!
