In the year 2000, under the initiation of the tourist office in Vitznau, it was decided that a 25mx25m Swiss flag be assembled on the cliff face Steigelfadbalm-Dossen of Mount Rigi to celebrate Swiss National Day. A perfect location for all to see on one of Switzerland's most popular mountains. Every year since 2001 a larger flag has been assembled on the same spot (30mx30m) to joy of the hiliday makers and the proud Swiss! According to locals in Vitznau the flag represents creativity, courage and challenge.
