About the Flag

I can show you the flag of the Swiss National Front (Front National). This party was founded in the early 1930s in Zurich. Its publication was "La Voix Nationale" (The national voice). After a lot of political troubles, this far-right party was dissolved in 1940. The "total" Swiss cross is present on a lot right-far flags from these time of the 1930s.

These flags with the throughout cross were used also after the war up to the present by such groups, although in recent news reports I only noticed the official Swiss flag (and cantonal flags) used by them. The Nationale Front was founded in 1933 as a merger of different right wing groups. That time with its growth and founding of such groups in Switzerland is called "Frontenfrühling" (springtime of fronts). In 1935 the (Swiss German) Nationale Front and the (Swiss French) Union Nationale could send each 1 member to the national parliament but only for four years.
