I was assuming he was smiling with some inner scandinavian joke like 'Tehe, I left the gas on' or something. :)

 

"Hehe, I never paid back any of my loans to the capitalist swine banks!!"

In one of his pre-1917 exiles, Trotsky spent some time in NYC and lived in an industrial neighborhood.  He was in awe that American factory workers had electricity, central heating, garbage collection...  He rented an apartment there and then he left without paying his rent... To stick it to those capitalist swine! :)

but latvians had red swastikas, finland still has blue one for their AF official flag


In flags it's actually black, since the flag itself is blue:

It's constant source of amusing outrage in, shall we say, more progressive countries :) couple of years ago a Swedish hockey coach shared picture of this plane in Facebook and was fired due to "promoting intolerant ideologies" or something like that.

you are in wrong thread, i think you meant the ´´cold war´´ one , or the ´´meanwhile in baltics´´?  :)

 

but latvians had red swastikas, finland still has blue one for their AF official flag

 

No, it was curious to me symbols are so close to one of Finland.

  And it was quite popular at that time  - for example here is Rus "Temporary Gov" money

Actually indicating how populist was Nazi movement - it is like having "Facebook F" as official symbol nowdays.

latvians and lithuanians have still a lot of really ancient symbols, my wife has replica shield ring with protective swastikas and earrings too

 

my son has one of these hanging from his window - as cultural heritage sign, like some wear crosses


 

 

however, this is about scandinavia, so end of off-topic

Hardly distinguishable from traditional Slavic symbols

"Thor's Fight with the Giants" in the Swedish National Museum not the swastika on the belt. Its a painting from 1872. Old map did use the swastika-symbol to mark powerplant.

Power-plant? to signify the turbines turning?

A building from 1927 here in Bergen is quite famous locally for the fences on its balconies;

The swastika is also used in hinduism, jainism and so on, and in Japan, a swastika is used as a map symbol for tempels.

Anyone who's struggled to schlepp a thirty-rack of Miller High Life home from the local beer joint might start to feel some phantom back pain when they drink in this picture of a 1,000 pack of the Finnish beer Keisari Lager.

That's right—for some insane reason, a 1,000-pack of beer is currently on sale in a store somewhere in Finland.

 

 

The stunt appears to be a direct response to Karjala, another Finnish brewery, that recently released a 100-pack of beer. You can read all about the 100-pack of Karjala beer here, in an article that ends with this prescient closing line:

    Expect Miller or some other beer brand to up the ante with a 1000-Pack sometime soon.

That's right, folks—we've got ourselves a good old fashioned beer arms race brewing. At least, that's what we think is going on here. To be perfectly honest, Google Translate only gets us so far when it comes to making sense of all this.
