Today is Finland's 100th independence day. Flag, pls?

General Discussion
Highly Rated
On this day, 100 years ago, Finland declared its independence. On this day of celebration, we would love to show off our pride by displaying the Finnish national flag in the player profile. We are a small country of 5.5 million people, but many of us play this game and some have even made it to Overwatch League.

I understand it's not yet possible to purchase player icons for our player profiles. But if Blizzard could make the flag a lootbox drop, it would make us Finns very, very happy. :)

Thank you all for your time to read this! If you think it would be a nice idea to get more flags as player icons, please comment below.
Yes it is needed
Happy Independence day! Don't know if Blizzard will add it, since they normally only add flags from countries of heroes
Nah, they won't.

Unless they plan on adding every other flag that's not currently in game.
Isn't finland a part of russia
isnt Finland the country that everyone says doesnt really exist?
There is no Finnish hero. Blizzard only add stuff when hero has their own country map.
Hyvää syntymäpäivää from Sweden! (Very sorry about the other 500 years of us ruling over you and then leaving you to Russia... no hard feelings, right? Right?) *nervous laughter*

May your hockey team do well against teams that aren't Sweden, your moomins continue to frolic, and your saunas never grow cold!

What has happened to basic education these days?!?! Apparently someone doesn't know what happens to Russians that invade Finland...
why? whats so special in it? Finn players can celebrate without a flag lol
If the flag isn't possible, a new Finnish hero would do fine too!
soldier or widow should get a Simo Hayha skin!
It’s also constitución day in Spain. Congratulations :)
(in Patrick's voice) FINLAND!

Also wow I didn't know some players from Finland made it into the OWL

A hero who's main weapon would be a sauna scoop with mämmi as ammunition.
Nonono. We need an another sniper as a hero. He would be a clone of a finnish legend sniper named Simo Häyhä and he would be the one to represent finland in overwatch. His abilities would include him hiding his breath with snow, having an instakill button every 10 seconds and his ultimate would just kill every enemy during a 12 second period unless he's killed.

Drawbacks would be, that you could only deal damage with headshots of your basic attack.

And then give us the finnish flag.

Happy 100 years of Independence, Finland!

We would like to add more flags to the game. Oddly, we run into a lot of legal issues when we do but we'll keep pushing to make it happen!
Hey stylosa! how goes it?
