Flag of Switzerland

Adopted: December 12, 1889
Ratio: 1:1

The Swiss flag is based on flag of the canton Schwyz. That flag is red with a small white cross in the upper hoist. The national flag first came into general use at the Battle of Laupen in 1339 and was used unofficially until 1848, when the confederation formally adopted it. The last time the flag was regulated was in 1889.
