Switzerland. Canton Ticino. Bellinzona. A warm welcome by the crowd to the newly-elected member of the Swiss cabinet, Ignazio Cassis, who will take over the foreign ministry. He is affiliated to the FDP The Liberals and was elected to the Federal Council of Switzerland on 20 September 2017. Ignazio Cassis is greeting the crowd with his right hand on his first return to Canton Ticino. The Canton Ticino has waited eighteen years for a newly elected minister at the Federal Council of Switzerland. The last one was Flavio Cotti (third man from the left) who was elected on 10 December 1986 and handed over office on 30 April 1999. He is affiliated to the Christian Democratic People's Party of Switzerland. The flag of Switzerland consists of a red flag with a white cross (a bold, equilateral cross) in the centre. It is one of only two square sovereign-state flags. 28.09.2017 © 2017 Didier Ruef
