History
• Future Estonian Football Association president Aivar Pohlak helped found Flora in March 1990, the club initially linking up with the chemical works of the same name; they started off life in the second division in Soviet-era Estonia, but became local giants in the years following the first post-independence season in 1992.

• Pohlak himself was Flora's first coach, as well as their president, but as the club's academy produced a regular stream of talent, four of his successors combined their duties with coaching the national team: Roman Ubakivi (1994-95), Icelander Teitur Thordarson (1996-99), Dutchman Arno Pijpers (2001-04) and Tarmo Rüütli (2000 and 2009).

• Back-to-back titles in 1994 and 1995, the latter a double, set the tone for Flora's domestic dominance – they have never finished lower than fourth in the league – while they were regulars in UEFA club competition, though a 2006/07 UEFA Cup success against SFK Lyn of Norway remains their only two-legged triumph in continental football.

• Flora's most famous match took place in Sicily on 29 August 1998 when they lost 2-1 to AC Milan in a friendly; Urmas Kirs put Flora in front but goals from George Weah and Zvonimir Boban gave Milan the win.

• Flora's A. Le Coq Arena is also Estonia's national stadium. Flora won their ninth domestic title in 2011, and remain the most successful club in Estonia, though FC Levadia Tallinn are closing on them fast.
