Happy Swiss National Day!
Frohe schweizer Bundesfeiertag!
Bonne fête nationale suisse!
Buona festa nazionale svizzera!
On August 1, the Swiss National Day is celebrated, acknowledged as Schweizer Bundesfeiertag in German, Fête nationale suisse in French, Festa nazionale Svizzera in Italian and Festa naziunala svizra in Romansh.
This significant day honors the establishment of the Swiss Confederation in 1291, which came into being through an alliance among the three cantons of Schwyz, Uri and Unterwalden.
This date holds great significance as it marks the moment when Switzerland was officially recognized as an independent state for the very first time.
