Graduation finnish style


Here are my little sisters graduation photos - isn't she beautiful! 

If you wonder about the funny nautical looking cap it's the finnish graduation cap. It has a metallic, gold-colored cockade depicting the lyre of Apollo, the insignia of the University of Helsinki. The cap was introduced in its present form in 1870s. The cap is worn by all Finnish high school graduates.
