Praise

PlanetBase

My first praise! Usually I just give out blame, but the authors of PlanetBase did (at least partially) the right thing: They put a red cross in the medical section of bases built in their game. Visible here at 9:51:

Now of course they shouldn’t be using the Red Cross signet either. The Red Cross in fact urges video game developers not to use their insignia. So hurray for not using a Swiss flag, but boo for using the Red Cross emblem.

Gods Will Be Watching

In this game, the first-aid kits proudly wear a Swiss flag, whether they’re mounted to the wall or portable:

Swiss "doctor" clip-art

This rich Swiss doctor is obviously carrying a suitcase full of Swiss Francs to an impoverished person in need (but with a stylish blue tie):

No, Toonvectors, that’s not what a first aid kit is supposed to look like. This is a properly colored first aid kit.

In case of emergency, open these doors

If you’re in the middle of an emergency, just open these doors, presumably they lead to Switzerland, where everything is safe. And red/white.

Found at Natural Pod. I asked them why they put a Swiss flag on this car. Let’s see what they answer.

No, IconsDB, that’s not an ambulance:

I don’t know what it is, but it might be a Swiss cheesemakers’ club car. It’s wearing a tradtional Swiss cheesemaker’s cap, after all. To remind you, an ambulance sign looks like this:

What’s this, a new member of the Swiss national snowboard team?

Every Life Secure

This company‘s mobile first aid kid hoists a modified Swiss flag, and it has another one on the back of the backpack:

And on the same page, they call it a “Swiss Army Knife of trauma first aid stations” and even show a picture of a real Swiss army knife. You know, with the Swiss coat of arms on it? If you’re just as confused as they are, this is the international first aid symbol:

The Long Dark

This game by Canadian developer Hinterland Studio has a confusing approach to first aid signage, sometimes using the Red Cross logo and sometimes the Swiss flag. It’s even mixed in one and the same image:

In this clip you can also observe how the first aid thing on the wall has a Swiss flag on it.

I wonder what’s in it. Gold? Chocolate? Cheese?
