Finnish Civil Guard Vaasa region sleeve patch. The patch is one of the more rare printed patches that were manufactured in end of the Continuation War. After the Finnish Civil War, a Civil Guard symbol for everyday use was designed. The artist Joseph Alanen drew a shield that had the letter S on the bottom and the three branched spruce spray on the top. This design was intended as symbol of commemoration for the capture of Tampere in 1918. In the beginning there were 11 different types of these shields, but as more and more regions were formed, in 1943 there were 19. The Civil Guard NCO's had this specific type of shield with the measurements 50 mm x 75 mm.The shield was worn in the upper left arm. The shield is in fine, used condition.
