    Copy answer from wikipedia.

    In Finland, the hakaristi (swastika) was used as the official national marking of the Finnish Defence Forces between 1918 and 1945 and also of the Finnish Air Force, anti-aircraft troops as a part of the air force and tank troops at that time. The swastika was also used by the Lotta Svärd organisation, Finnish paramilitary organisation for women, which was dissolved in 1944 according to the terms of the Moscow Armistice.

    Finnish heraldry does not distinguish between swastika and fylfot; they both are called hakaristi ("hook-cross"). Most hakaristi devices are actually fylfots.

    In armored forces, Finns started to use fylfot swastika identification after winter war 1940-1944, in black and white colors.

    The swastika has not disappeared in Finnish medals and decorations, example Order of the Cross of Liberty. It still also appears in Finnish airforce flags.
