What happened when Finland celebrated 100 years?

Picture Collections

The National Museum and the Picture Collections of the Finnish Heritage Agency documented how independent Finland celebrated its centenary in 2017. Watch how Finnish Eurovision songs have zero points – except the masked metal band Lordi – during an independence day celebration at the Pihlajamäki elementary school and how people sing "I'm from Finland" together at the Pataässä restaurant in Helsinki.
