Cantonal Flags

Hi all,

Does anyone know where to buy the string of canton flags that I see around? I don't want the individual ones but the one strung together. I am in Lausanne.

Thanks in advance!

But don't forget there is a test, you need to be able to identify all of them before you are allowed to buy them. TIS

That’s what I thought so I posted both links.

I was thinking the 10chf mark as that’s what they sell them for in coop but only at certain times of year.

Though not unusual in Switzerland where people will willingly pay up to ten times the price for the exact same thing on offer elsewhere.
