You happen to have a serious relationship with a Swiss cross? ??Then read on to find out what you didn’t know until now. Photo and story shared by @meiermaria.switzerland???? ??Only two states in the world have a square flag. These are Switzerland and the Vatican ??, these two countries have a lot in common
??The cross on the canvas was once a religious symbol, and it now symbolises the inviolability of borders and the neutrality of the country – this is reflected in the fact that the ends of the cross do not touch the edge of the flag. ??The flag is absolutely symmetrical, you can hang it on either side and the pattern will not change. I think this fact symbolises the extraordinary orderliness of life here, said @meiermaria.switzerland. ??There is a legend about the cross in the flag of Switzerland: Once, during the time of Ancient Rome, members of the Legion, who refused to offer pagan sacrifices and thereby violate their faith, were executed. After some time, the legionary martyrs were counted among the saints, the city in which all this happened became world famous under the name St Moritz (named after one of the black legionaries), and the cross became a symbol of martyrdom for faith and perseverance. And the Swiss are unusually persistent guys.⠀ ??This is just one version. According to the second – it was this symbol that adorned the battle banners of people from the canton of Schwyz, who teamed up with neighbors to expel the Austrian invaders from the country. Schwyz – Swiss – Switzerland. ?????? You have anything to add?
