    Glad to see more people raising funds, but in terms of design, this is far better:

    Either way, I'm pretty sure that every little bit helps.

    • you're right, that one is lovely

  • Gruetzi

    Looks like a help for Switzerland

  • Egel

    What's the connection with Switzerland?

    • lozärn

      google the swiss flag champ.

      • ozmoto

        Google the Japanese flag champ and go get another latte.

        • FGA

          There there don't be so sure of yourself

          Swiss Air Force insignia :

          Lattes for everyone, my treat.

          • Francisco

            And it was also one of the first insignias that the swiss athletes wore on the olympics.
            But I admit that the rectangular shape of the flag makes it the japanese flag because swiss flag is square.

  • bearded

    I hate when designers confuse the swiss flag with the red cross: the cross has to be red, not the background.

    • tindo

      but then you wouldn't get the japanese flag in the background

    • FGA

      Not the Swiss flag, but the Swiss Air Force insignia that gets put on everything:

      Some designers need to do some research sometimes, hey ?

  • Why using the Swiss flag? People should know the difference between the white and the red cross. I dont get it.
