Finnish Air Force stopped swastika Abroad

The change was noticed by Teivo Teivainen, a professor of International Relations at the University of Helsinki. Teivainen has long been critical of the use of the swastika by the Air Force.

Although Finland was an ally of Nazi Germany during World War II, the use of the swastika by the Finnish Air Force goes back longer. In 1918, Swedish count Eric von Rosen donated an aircraft to the Air Force. He had a blue swastika put on it, because that Germanic rune sign would bring good luck.
