Switzerland. Canton Ticino. Bellinzona. Hotel Garni Liberty. A statue of Helvetia on the hotel’s terrace. Helvetia is the female national personification of Switzerland, officially the Swiss Confederation.The allegory is typically pictured in a flowing gown, with a spear and a shield emblazoned with the Swiss flag, and commonly with braided hair, commonly with a wreath as a symbol of confederation. 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. 16.05.2017 © 2017 Didier Ruef
