It is known as “ConfoederationHalvetica” confederation stands for confederation and Helvetica word comes from Halvetier basically it’s the name of the people who lived in the area which now became known as Switzerland. Its flag look is a white cross on the red back. The cross represents the white cross as Jesus was put on, and the red color shows as his blood. Each arm of the cross is same in size.
