Guess it's different with those European-flags on all the others, which could come from anywhere.
Read Annex 3 of the Vienna Convention on Road Traffic which carefully outlines how the distinguishing sign must look when it is part of the license plate or a separate sticker/marking.

Switzerland is free to incorporate it into the license plate like Turkey, Albania, or Iran already did.

I guess it would make sense, especially since some cantons will reach 1 mio. registrations within a forseeable time and require a different solution.

oh dear .... Vienna convention taking care of this, huh?

I just take your word for it. Something tells me the ol' hippie within me does not want to read it.
But thanks for the info - at least I know where to look for these things now should I get in itch.

That is the Ferderal Councils opinion as well. Sucks as a crotch rocket rider as I would prefer the distinguishing sign to be part of the license plate much sooner. Unfortunately that change is not yet scheduled and Canton Zurich has still around 100k numbers left for use.

I'd like to see a poll as to who actually has one on their car/bike.
On ALL bikes and cars!

The Swiss cross/flag is on every single Swiss number plate.
Only on the rear plate.

Re: CH sticker on back of car

Out of interest is there any genuine testimonial from someone here who received a fine because of the small CH sticker?

Re: CH sticker on back of car

For anyone who is interested, and like me does not like the idea of stickers on the paintwork of their car, I have now found in Jumbo magnetic CH stickers (large). Previously I had only seen magnetic ones in D and GB.
