The finnish press has widely noticed Victoria's tribute to Finland with her dress - Whooper Swan is Finland's National Bird. The swan at Victoria's dress isn't Whooper Swan, but a swan anyway.
From the finnish media:

He also called Sweden a beloved neighbor. The president gave praise also to the royal couple. Niinistö thanked for their contribution and attendance at the celebration. In addition, the President thanked everyone who has contributed to the Festival.

Thank you for the good coverage LadyFinn.
Isn't Madeleine in Sweden? I thought she would attend the lunch with the family.

I too would think that she would have attended the lunch if she was in Sweden.

Mark Levengood hosted the STHLM/SUOMI event. His mother is finnish and father american, he lived his childhood in Finland, but he has lived in Sweden since 1980's. Levengood writes in his Twitter: "Think, that the royal couple, the President of Finland and a few thousand people are enough for a Finn to get a little moved."

That’s not all that was wrong – the Daily Mail title is misleading. It is the King and Queen of Sweden who welcomed the President of Finland Mr. Sauli Niinistö and Mrs. Jenni Haukio to Sweden; and joining the King and Queen for lunch, in honor of the Presidential Couple, was Victoria, Daniel, and CP.

President Sauli Niinistö spoke with the finnish media before he left Sweden and said that the warm atmosphere of the opening ceremony reflected his view of the very close relationship between Finland and Sweden, which has year after year only intensified. Niinistö also pointed out that he met king Carl Gustaf for the fourth time this year on Thursday.
