Switzerland's Flag

The flag of Switzerland is a red square with a white couped cross in the center. Switzerland's flag was adopted from the flag of the Swiss canton of Schwyz (one of the first three Swiss cantons). This flag was adopted as the official flag on December 12, 1889, but the design dates from about 1480 (long before Switzerland had formed). The flag represents freedom, honor, and fidelity.

The Swiss flag and the flag of the Vatican are the only square national flags.
