Flagging for Aleksis Kivi

The flags are flying again today. Traditionally on October 10 is celebrated as the Day of Finnish literature.

Today the Finns honor their National writer Aleksis Kivi who would turn 199 today. Kivi is most famous for his book “Seitsemän veljestä” (The Seven Brothers) which was the first significant novel ever written in Finnish language.
