Finland, welcome to NATO. Finland’s membership makes NATO stronger, and Finland safer.
Finland has now become a member of the Alliance, after decades of being one of NATO’s closest partners. Their full membership makes NATO stronger, and Finland safer.
At the Madrid Summit in June 2022, NATO Heads of State and Government invited Finland, together with Sweden, to join NATO and since then their relationship with the Alliance became even stronger, as they started integrating into our political and military structures. As a consequence, the security of both countries has been much enhanced.
From today, 31 flags will now fly together as a symbol of our unity and our solidarity.
