Flag of Bern (GIF)



Bern is the second largest canton of the 26 Swiss cantons in central-western Switzerland. Its capital is Bern, its population is about 1,031,000, and its area is 5,960 km². The Bern flag consists of three red, yellow, and red crossed stripes divided into black lines with a black bear walking upwards on a yellow stripe. The bear is one of the oldest religious and totemistic symbols. The red and yellow colors are believed to come from the war flag of the Holy Roman Empire. And the current flag design is based on 1289.
