Swiss flag

The national flag of Switzerland (Schweizerfahne in German; Drapeau de la Suisse in French) has a white cross in the middle of a square red field. The white cross is known as the Swiss Cross or Federal Cross. Along with the flag of the Vatican, the Swiss flag is one of only two square national flags in the world. The White Cross was used as the field emblem (affixed to the clothing of warriors and to cantonal war flags in the form of stripes of cloth) of the Old Swiss Confederation from its formation in the late 13th or early 14th century. Its symbolism was described by the Swiss Federal Council in 1889 as representing "at the same time the symbol of the Christian cross and the field emblem of the Old Confederation". It was first used as a national flag during the Napoleonic Wars by General Niklaus Franz von Bachmann and from 1841 as the regimental flag of all cantonal armies. The federal coat of arms (eidgenössisches Wappen) was defined in 1815 for the Restored Confederation as white on a red Swiss cross in a heraldic shield. The current form was used together with a cross composed of five squares until 1889, when its dimensions were officially defined.
