This week the Finnish flag was raised outside NATO Headquarters in Belgium as the nation officially became the 31st member of the alliance.

Despite having less than 1% of the total population of NATO member countries, the admission is notable due to its 832-mile long shared border with Russia.

Finland’s swift application to join NATO last year was the fastest to be approved in the organization’s history.

Sweden’s, however, has yet to receive the unanimous approval needed as both Hungary and Turkey are blocking it.
