Description

The first Swiss mercenaries in the service of Spain were hired in 1483 by the Catholic Kings, according to Fernando del Pulgar to fight in the war against the Muslim Kingdom of Granada. These units were recruited by means of treaties called capitulations between the interested princes and the cantonal governments. Spain only hired troops from Catholic cantons.

This flag belonged to the Swiss Regiment commanded by Col. Karl Ignaz Nideröst (between 1719 and 1735) and is kept at the Bundesbriefmuseum in Schwyz (Switzerland). The size of the flag is 2.26 m × 2.36 m. This Swiss Regiment fought in the service of the Spanish King. Source: Manzano 1997 [mzn97].
