Finnish Suojeluskunta chapter badges

Unread postby Toushu » Sun Nov 10, 2013 1:12 pm

The Finnish Suojeluskunta (White Guard) was a militia organization active during the period between the world wars. The organization was responsible for voluntary and reservist activities, sports, and various social aspects of local communities.

The following illustrations are from Suojeluskuntain Historia, II Puolustuskelpoinen kansa - Hätävarasta välttämättömyys (written by N.V. Hersalo, published by HATA Oy).

I apologize for the blurry images, I took them with my cellphone.

The chapter badges were used in the different Skps (Suojeluskuntapiiri / Suojeluskunta chapter), with certain chapters sharing colors.
