Happy Swiss National Day
August 1 is Swiss National Day. This date is equivalent to America’s Fourth of July.
To celebrate Swiss National Day, I’m featuring the Swiss flag. Did you know that the Swiss flag is the world’s only square-shaped national flag?
The Red Cross emblem is the reverse of the Swiss flag. It honors Switzerland, where the Red Cross was founded in 1863.
Ah. The joy of trivia.
Happy Swiss National Day!
