Finnish Flag Day. Midsummer.

Posted by
Jypyä Pop (Turku, Finland) on 20 June 2015 in Lifestyle & Culture and Portfolio.

Today is celebrated Finnish flag days. Flags are waving to yesterday evening at six, and with flying colors on this day, at night until nine. Today we celebrated the summer solstice day, when the days are longest in southern Finland. Its length is 19 hours 2 minutes. Above the Arctic Circle the sun does not set at all.
