"Finnair (Finnish: Finnair Oyj, Swedish: Finnair Abp) is the flag carrier and
largest airline of Finland. It was established on November 1, 1923 as Aero O/Y
(English: Aero Ltd.). Aero started using the name Finnish Air Lines in 1947.
Also, Aero started using the name Finnair in its marketing (strategy) already in
1953, even though the official name change did not happen until 1968."

Its flag is the logo over a white horizontal background as seen here:
