1. The national flag of Switzerland is square.
2. It is illegal to keep only one pet. The reasoning is that animals are social creatures, so keeping one might make it feel lonely.
3. The Swiss are very concerned about Sunday, and many shops will close on this day, so friends may not be able to buy things on Sunday in Switzerland.

On Sundays, you must not mow lawns, wash clothes to dry clothes, or wash cars, because too much noise will disturb others.
