I tried to look this up and there seems to be many accepted formats,
however what that command shows doesn't seem to be any of them.
This is one of the accepted formats, but it may not be easy to implement.
"12. tammikuuta 2021 22.55.05"

"Tammikuu" means "January", but in the format it is "tammikuuta", which
means "of January".
Usually we see dates in format: "12.1.2021", "Tiistai 12.1" or just "12.1"
and times in "22:55" or "klo 22.55" (to avoid the confusion in cases of
"12.10 date or time?").
Even our national broadcasting company uses these de facto formats.
