Although the white cross was used as a military ensign by the Old Swiss Confederacy in the 14th century, its suspension in a red field was introduced during the Napoleonic period of the 1800s. This flag was officially adopted by Switzerland in 1889. This flag is identical to that of the Red Cross.
This outdoor flag is made from durable 200-Denier nylon that has been treated to resist fading. The flag is finished with a sturdy white canvas heading and grommets. Its image is dyed, single-sided, and reversed on the back.
Although this flag is not square, this flag is used by Switzerland’s government and displayed at the U.N. Headquarters in New York.
