Today, approximately 5% of the current population in Finland are considered to be Swedish-speaking Finns. This history of Swedish-speaking Finns dates back several centuries to when Finland was under Swedish rule and trade was prominent along the Baltic coast.

The day has been celebrated in Finland since 1908 by the Swedish speakers as “Svenska dagen”. The date was chosen in honor of King Gustavus Adolphus of Sweden, who was killed on November 6 in 1632 at the Battle of Lützen in the Thirty Years’ War.
