The 1936 proposal for Gtr. Arms of Finland

Postby Marcus Karlsson » 25 May 2013, 10:59

In 1936 there was a proposal for greater Arms of Finland. Note that the Crown didn't symbolise that Finland had become a Kingdom. It was used as a Symbol of Sovereignity. The proposal was not approved.

Any reason it wasn't approved? also, I realize that I don't like reguardant supporters.

Not at all. They're looking out for Swedes and Russians.

The sad answer Ryan is that i don't know why it wasn't approved. Perhaps It was deemed that a greater Arms wasn't needed after all.
