1526 Mikkeli

This minor planet is named after the town and municipality of Mikkeli, Finland. It is notable for having been the base of operations for the Finnish armed forces during World War II.

The symbol for this minor planet is derived from elements on its coat of arms: a wide short "X" representing the crossed Marshal's batons, over a bow with an arrow knocked and pointing up to touch the batons.
