Why is the flag being flown today? What time should the flag be lowered?
The Ministry of the Interior’s Liputan application provides information on why the flag is being flown today and what times it should be raised and lowered. Based on the user’s selection, the application provides advance notification of upcoming flag days.
If your phone's location is switched on, the app will automatically display when the flag should be flown in your location.
In addition, the app provides background information on flag days and general information about flying the flag, including answers to frequently asked questions.
There are some rules in Finnish flag flying culture, but in principle flying the flag is a joyful and dignified way of honouring Finnishness. The app is part of the #Liputan campaign of the Ministry of the Interior.
The app utilises GPS location data to show accurate sunrise and sunset times based on the user’s location. The application can also be used without GPS.
The application requires a data connection to function. The provider of the app does not accept any responsibility for the use of the connection or any costs incurred.
The app does not identify the user, and no personal information or data is collected or used for this purpose.
The application does not identify devices nor register data connections used.
