Switzerland. Geneva. Old town. View on the St. Pierre Cathedral (R) and the Jura mountain through a tarpaulin for construction site. The St. Pierre Cathedral is a cathedral which belongs to the Reformed Protestant Church of Geneva. It is known as the adopted home church of John Calvin, one of the leaders of the Protestant Reformation. The swiss flag and the flag of the Geneva Canton are flying in the wind. The flag of Switzerland consists of a red flag with a white cross (a bold, equilateral cross) in the centre. The flag of Geneva is the historical flag of the city of Geneva, showing the Imperial Eagle and a Key of St. Peter (symbolizing the status of Geneva as Reichsstadt and as episcopal seat, respectively), in use since the 15th century. 25.04.2016 © 2016 Didier Ruef
