These people are losers.

How about forgetting cosmetic changes to the country’s national anthem and go after the Left’s liberty crushing policies at home and in the EU?

National Coalition Party proposes new national anthem

If National Coalition Party leaders get their way, the party will begin campaigning for Finland to adopt a new national anthem. The party leadership will ask delegates to support a push to replace the current national anthem, Our Land (Maamme), with the Finlandia Hymn, written by iconic Finnish composer Jean Sibelius.

The youth leadership of the National Coalition Party wants to adopt a new national anthem – the Finlandia Hymn, a section of the epic patriotic composition “Finlandia” by renowned Finnish composer Jean Sibelius.

Youth chapters of the Ostrobothnia and Tampere region party groups have pitched the idea for a new national anthem to be considered by delegates at the annual congress in June. The party leadership will recommend that delegates approve the initiative.

The NCP’s Ostrobothnia youth chapter has proposed replacing the current national anthem, Our Land (Maamme) , lyrics written by the national Swedish-Finnish poet J.L. Runeberg, with the Finlandia Hymn, lyrics by Finnish poet V.A. Koskiniemi. They have argued that Koskiniemi’s lyrics reflect Finns’ steadfastness and patriotism.

For its part the Tampere region youth arm said that Sibelius’ piece represents Finnishness and is a tribute to Finnish cultural history.

“For a national anthem Finland deserves a national song that is historically related to gaining independence,” the Tampere group said, referencing the importance of Sibelius’ work as part of the Finnish national struggle to resist efforts to increase Russian influence.
