Switzerland. Canton Ticino. Sala. A booklet with the place of origin and swiss passport laid on a table in the living room of Elsy (Elsa) Hofer Ferrari Ramuz . In Switzerland, the place of origin (German: Heimatort or Bürgerort, literally "home place" or "citizen place"; French: Lieu d'origine; Italian: Luogo d'origine) denotes where the Swiss citizen has his municipal citizenship. It is not to be confused with the place of birth or the place of residence, although two or all three of these locations can be identical depending on the person. The front cover of a Swiss passport. The passport is issued to citizens of Switzerland to facilitate international travels. The flag of Switzerland consists of a red flag with a white cross (a bold, equilateral cross) in the centre. It is one of only two square sovereign-state flags. Elsy Hofer Ferrari Ramuz is the niece of Charles-Ferdinand Ramuz (September 24, 1878 – May 23, 1947) who was a French-speaking Swiss writer.  14.11.2017 © 2017 Didier Ruef
