National Day of the Sami people

The Sami flag - blue, yellow, green and red with a circle in the middle.
The colours of the Sami flag from 1986 (blue, red, yellow and green) are those most commonly found on traditional Sami garbs. The circle derives from the sun, in red, a symbol appearing on many shaman drums. The blue half of the circle represents the moon. Photo: Mikael Svensson/Scandinav/imagebank.sweden.se

Today is the National Day of the Sami people! It’s celebrated every year, on 6 February, in northern parts of Sweden, Norway and Finland, as well as in the Kola Peninsula in Russia. 

This day marks the anniversary of the first Sami national meeting held in Trondheim, Norway, back in 1917. 

About 20,000 Sami people live in Sweden – with their own cultural heritage, language, flag and parliament. The Sami are one of the world's indigenous peoples, and one of Sweden's five official national minorities.
