Does anybody knows why Finnish Tanks during ww2 had swastikas drawn on them ?

Posted February 25th, 2018 at 07:41 AM by Vaggelis22TheGreek

I was watching some footage by Talvisota and I notised that Finnish tanks had swastikas drawn on them and I found that weird because I know that Finland was a Duchy and it had no connections to nazi ideology.Later I found that Finland fought against Germany as well and I got confused because they fought with the country which the swastika was her national symbol...
so if anyone knows,their help will be apreciated.Thanks everybody and sorry if my question is too silly.Thanks again

    This will get better response if you re-post it in the proper history category. This blog is for essays or longer thought pieces. Thanks.

    Finland advocates argue that the Finnish swastika ("hakaristi") has nothing to do with Nazi symbols. Count von Rosen in 1918,they say,presented Finnish white government a plane,at which for some reason a blue swastika was painted,that's how this tradition was born.However,it's no matter what did this Swedish aristocrat mean then,but twenty years later the swastika meant a belonging to a well-defined and very popular in Europe ideology.Ultimately,if the blue swastika was just a harmless Finnish national character,then it is not clear why in 1944 the Finns refused it?
