"Mors lilla Olle" - United Buddy Bear from Sweden.
My spontaneous idea was to name the Swedish Buddy Bear after the famous children's song "Mors lilla Olle" by Alice Tegnér. The song is about a little boy, Olle, who is looking for blueberries with his mother in a deep, dense forest. The boy, however, gives all his berries to the bear as a gift.
The song is based on a legend from northern Sweden from the year 1850.

The bear is wearing a "mid-summer garland" on his head.
