Flag of Grisons (GIF)



Grisons is Switzerland's largest and easternmost canton. Its capital is Chur, its population is about 198,000, and its area is 7,105 km². The current design of the flag of Grisons combines simplified versions of the historical coats of arms. The upper left quarter of the flag consists of two vertical stripes of black and white and represents the "Gray League". The upper right quarter consists of a blue and yellow cross (the cross of the "League of Ten Jurisdictions"). In the lower half, a mountain goat symbolizes freedom, independence, and courage, as well as the emblem of the "League of God's House".
