Colonia lulia equestris / Swiss - flag and crest

Pictured below is a statue of a Swiss soldier circa 1450 holding the banner of Nyon. A unit of these locals will, of course, be included in my Swiss Army (1450s) but a decendant of them will also be found in my Seven Years War army for Colonia lulia equestris.

In my fictional account of the founding of Saxe-Bearstein, it was founded and settled by a mercenary unit from Switzerland.

Specifically from Ticino Canton (bordering the Italian states).

Thanks for the colors of Nyon!
Hoping the 1450 Swiss army will not hinder too long the development of the CIE SYW army.
