The National Board of Antiquities (NBA, Museovirasto, Museiverket) is the state authority responsible for Finland's historical objects: buildings, excavation sites etc. It even runs several museums, including the National Museum in Helsinki. They have their own pennant which is flown in the summer on buildings administrated by the NBA, e.g. the castles of Turku, Hämeenlinna and Savonlinna, except on national holidays, when the state flag is used.
The pennant is composed of a golden outlined swallow-tailed cross (seal of the
NBA) on red square, the fly being in the national colours, blue over white.
