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.

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:

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.

Oniken by JoyMasher

Game developers JoyMasher chose a Swiss flag to represent the hero’s health in their game Oniken:

But if it truly were a Swiss flag, it would have to be square instead of rectangular. The rectangular one is a permitted variant, but not the real deal!

Alexander Lehmann's "We Love Surveillance"

While the clip itself is quite funny and carries an important message, Alexander chose to put a Swiss flag on this doctor’s office’s wall:

Making himself look like a fool. Or simply representing the doctor as a big fan of Switzerland.
