"It is important to understand that the sign of the early Finnish Air Force has nothing to do with the Nazi Germany. The blue swastika was the symbol of good fortune used by the Swedish Count Eric von Rosen who during the Finnish Civil War presented to the Finnish White Army its first aircraft on March 6th, 1918. The swastika was painted on the upper side and under side of the wings of the Thulin Parasol he brought from Sweden. The sign was adopted by the Finnish Air Force to honor him."
