Greeting from President of the Republic Sauli Niinistö to Finnish Expatriates and Finns Abroad on December 6, 2018

Dear Friends,

Another year has passed. It is once again time for me to wish you all a happy

Independence Day. I know, of course, that you are proud to fly the flag for Finland every

day of the year.

It won't surprise you to hear that the autumn here in Finland has again been long and dark

and we now all look forward to the light and joy the December festivities will bring.

It is precisely this joy and happiness I want to wish to you, Finnish citizens and people of

Finnish heritage around the world.

And once again: Happy Independence Day!

Sauli Niinistö

President of the Republic of Finland
