The tradition to fly household pennants in Finland is quite common. A pennant can be flown whenever there is no flag day and it is usually a means of telling that the "master of the house" is at home. These pennants have a long, narrow, triangular shape, usually half the length of the flag pole. The triangle has a base of roughly one tenth of the length and it is connected to the pole via a single lanyard, giving the pennant the ability to rotate while flying.

  • Husbondsvimpel kallas en särskild typ av vimpel, som ofta används i Finland. Vimpeln hissas för att visa att man är hemma, om det inte av annat skäl finns anledning att hissa flaggan. Namnet på vimpeln kommer sig av att den normalt visar färgerna för det historiska landskap som fadern i familjen, "husbonden", härstammar från. Det finns också en finsk vimpel, som är vit med blått kors. Vidare har man med inspiration från de gamla vimplarna också skapat nya för några av de nya landskap som bildades på 1990-talet. Även många kommuner i Finland använder sig av vimplar.
  • The tradition to fly household pennants in Finland is quite common. A pennant can be flown whenever there is no flag day and it is usually a means of telling that the "master of the house" is at home. These pennants have a long, narrow, triangular shape, usually half the length of the flag pole. The triangle has a base of roughly one tenth of the length and it is connected to the pole via a single lanyard, giving the pennant the ability to rotate while flying. The different regions of Finland have been connected with some traditional colors (often from the regional coats of arms), and these are often reflected in the household pennant. The pennants sometimes also incorporate the regional arm into the design. The shapes, designs and uses of the pennants are however not regulated by law, as long as they do not interfere with uses of the regular flag, which is regulated. It is also allowed to fly a pennant overnight. In addition to the general pennant (which is based on the flag of Finland) and the regional variants, there are also family, city and municipality variants, of which any may be flown. A common practice is to either fly the pennant of the region of residence or the pennant from which the family members come.
