Hardhat graphics - American and Swiss

Does anyone have a recommendation for good quality graphics to display a hybrid of proud American / Swiss pride?

I am American, married to a lovely Swiss woman and permanently living in Switzerland. I am employed by a Swiss construction company with jobsites in Switzerland and in America. I travel as needed to both countries.

I would like to find or commission a custom graphic to be worn daily on my hardhat. Something that evokes pride in those who see it.

I currently own one of the full brim (old-school ironworker) style hardhats from MSA Skullgard.

Any and all suggestions are welcome.

Something like that is nice. Was just found in simple Swiss and American flag search on google.

Re: Hardhat graphics - American and Swiss

First of all, Thank you.

Yes I myself have done a bit of googling. There are a such examples of both flags. However I am looking for something more interesting. I like some of the designs and quality of the art work here.

I only hope to find artwork from someone who truly understands what makes both Swiss and Americans feel pride and respect for those of us out on the jobsites every day.

Thanks again.

Re: Hardhat graphics - American and Swiss

You may want to go for the understatement. I know this "proud of my country" stuff is for most part an American thing, but here in Euroland itīs mainly regarded as harmless at best, running over to "kitschy" and cringeworthy at worst.
At least in the eyes of those from the middle of the political spectrum leaning to the left, they see it as a thing for persons who subsrcibe to more "nationalistic" views and tendencies.

Re: Hardhat graphics - American and Swiss

OP, it sounds like maybe you'll have to come up with your own creative meaning/logo/graphic for a sense of pride that you describe.

I have had some cool logos and such made on Fivver.com in the past. Maybe not exactly what you looking for but could help.

When I wore a hard-hat years ago on the job, my sense of pride was keeping it a bit dirty to communicate that I was doing my job.
