Osterbotten Arms T-Shirt - Historically called Österbotten, now called Ostrobothnia, this is a huge region in the center of Finland. The 120,000 year old settlement near Kristinestad is the only remaining evidence of pre-ice age neanderthal men in Fenno-Scandinavia. Modern humans arrived 9000 years ago, as soon as the ice sheet disappeared. Through the centuries the region has belonged to Finland and Sweden. For a while in the 1700s Russian troops turned much of it into a no-mans-land to separate their holdings from Sweden. The coat of arms features six ermines, nose to tail. You'll love this historical Finnish coat of arms t-shirt.
