This time, no chance to mix them up ever again. Thank you ice hockey.
I’m also very happy for our national team. The new trainer took a risk and used young players in the national team for the mondials. It paid off.

Yet Romansh is more of a dialect and very few people speak it nowadays but it’s still an official language.
Because of this, all official materials are written in three languages.
We also have cantons that have two languages, and one even has three.
For more info about our language organization, follow this link.

I have three and use them all.
Also, a funny bonus image.

The swiss guard has served all over Europe for centuries, as ceremonial guards or mercenaries, and fought in many italian conflicts. But the Pontifical Guard is probably the most well known and colorful to say the least. They obey strict rules, have to be catholic and swiss citizens, and only males can enter the guard.
If you want to know more about the guards, check this link.

These are only examples of the food products I think - beside the chocolate and cheese brands - are the most internationally well known.
Ovomaltine - it’s like cocoa powder but better. Check out their commercials, they’re priceless
Le Parfait - it’s liver pâté and it’s soooo tasty
Knorr - mostly culinary herbs mixes, but also other products like dehydrated soups for example
Cenovis - probably one of the most famous among the swiss. You like it or you hate it, it’s made of yeast extract (like Marmite) and very strong in taste
Ricola - candy made with herbs. Check their commercials too
Rivella - soft drink made of milk whey, it may sound weird but it’s rather good (like Cenovis, you like it or hate it)
Maggi - sorry, the image is small… Also a culinary product brand like Knorr
Toblerone - classic airport swiss chocolate, with almonds and nougat
Game: find a HQ picture of a toblerone package and find the hidden image! It’s on every package and once you saw it, you cannot forget it :)

Depends on the bands, I saw an honorable number of my favourite bands or musicians which include My Chemical Romance, Thrice, Anti-Flag, Placebo, Bon Jovi, Morcheeba and Lady Gaga to quote but a few.
