Square One...

...of two.

That's right, Switzerland is one of two countries with a square flag.
Red square with an equilateral white cross in center.















The other is the Vatican flag:
Vatican City is smallest country in world.













We often get asked, what do like best about Switzerland?

We can't pinpoint any one thing except for the fact that the flag is a big plus.
Buh-Duh-Buhm!
(Joke modified and adapted for this post 😆)

My poem brings us back to square one:
Swiss flag -
always adds

  1. I wonder if the commonality of flag shape is what attracted the Swiss Guard to the Vatican. I learn something new with each of your poems ;)

    1. Thanks, Helen! I thought about adding the fact that the Swiss are the guards at the Vatican, but that may have to wait for another post...after we visit Rome! =)

    1. I think we may share a 'special' kind of sense of humor, Chris. =)
