  5. Tribute to Finnish Immigrants
Centennial Walkway, Walta Ave., Kaleva, MI, USA 49645

Three 4×4 foot panels with Finnish inspired symbols serve as a memorial to the Finlander immigrants to Kaleva. One of the panels features a crowned lion, the coat of arms of Finland. The other two depict Finnish designs, including a poem about the homeland. These quilt patterns are found along the Centennial Walkway established by the Brethren High School’s Service Learning Class for the town’s centennial in 2000.
