Sky Watch - A Swiss in UK

Hubby said "oh, look at that" so I looked. I thought then this would make a great sky watch picture.
No clue what's all about, other than it's something about Swiss. I mean, I read the plate but I don't remember... we were after the dinner and some beer :)).
Happy Friday!
Please remember to check Tom's page for more about Sky Watch Friday!

  2. Interesting! The cantonal coat of arms for Bern is the same one used by the city of Bern, North Carolina. I guess it was originally settled by Bernese-Swiss immigrants.

    What a cool and unusual little find in London!

  5. Was it just off Leicester Square? If so it is advertising the Swiss Centre, which is an old block which now houses a cinema (I think), shops and restaurants. I did a quick Google and it appears that the centre may be demolished to make way for something more modern - I hope they don't get rid of this sign though.

  10. Very nice shot. A zoom on the photo let me see that, according to the plaque, the vertical object was a Cantonal Tree, bearing the coat of arms of the 26 Swiss Cantons. The area in which the post stands was designated as "Swiss Court" to recognize the long-standing friendly relationship between Switzerland and the U.K.
    Interesting!
