individual Swedes and country are two different things, that is true. Finns relationship to Sweden is little difficult, history, language... My sister moved to Uppsala at one time several decades ago and start to stydy. She is married with swedish man and they vist in Finland every year. They are really nice people but everytime when they are in Finland i notice how they look down on Finland.
I can say that my sister is now more Swedish that native Swedish and it seems that they think that Finland is somekind of middle of nowhere and we are living in periphery. So many Finns think that Swedish people are arrogant when they are visiting in Finland just like thinking that now we are in our ex colony.
