Public domain

This file depicts the coat of arms of a Swiss Körperschaft des öffentlichen Rechts (corporation governed by public law). Official works like coats of arms are gemeinfrei (in the public domain).

Note: The usage of coats of arms is governed by legal restrictions, independent of the copyright status of the depiction shown here.

Das im Bild dargestellte Wappen ist das Hoheitszeichen einer Körperschaft des öffentlichen Rechts in der Schweiz. Die Verwendung öffentlicher Wappen und Zeichen ist durch das Bundesgesetz vom 5. Juni 1931 (232.21) und die Vollziehungsverordnung vom 5. Januar 1932 (232.211) geregelt ( vgl. Volltext). Für die Wappen des Bundes und der Kantone ist Art. 3 massgeblich, für die Wappen der Bezirke, Kreise und Gemeinden Art. 5.

This image shows a flag, a coat of arms, a seal or some other official insignia. The use of such symbols is restricted in many countries. These restrictions are independent of the copyright status.

WARNING: The Swiss coat of arms has special legal protection in the United States ( US Code Title 18, Part I, Chapter 33, § 708) and other countries. This is unlikely to affect its use in Wikimedia projects; this special protection is required by the w:Geneva Conventions to avoid confusion with the w:Red Cross emblem (a colour reversal of the Swiss emblem).
