Your Daily 5 Nordic Facts : Finland

  1. For some bizarre reason, there isn’t a single payphone in Finland.
  2. Sauna is the most used Finnish word outside of the motherland.
  3. I thought it would be Sweden, but apparently Finland has world’s highest annual consumption of milk per capita – around 1 litre per person every day.
  4. The blue of the Finnish flag represents the water of the thousands of lakes in the country, whereas the white represents snow, of which Finland sees a shit ton of in winter.
  5. Despite being the eighth largest country Europe, it’s the most sparsely populated country in the European Union.
