About the flag

Here is flag of Swiss Post (or La Poste suisse or La Posta Svizzera or Die Schweizerische Post or La Posta Svizra), as seen as a row of banners at 
Tomislav Šipek, 14 August 2019

This is not exactly a logo on a bedsheet. And what do we call these things that blur the distinction between banners, bunting and billboards?

There are several reasons for questioning the authority and flaggishness of this item:

  1.  Swiss Post Solutions seems to be a subsidiary company of Swiss Post, and the website illustrating and hosting this "flag" is Dutch, not Swiss.
  2. English is not one of the official languages of Switzerland.
  3. There have been no sightings of this "flag" rendering the logo in any of the four official languages of Switzerland.
  4. Switzerland is a very flag-conscious country, and strangely-shaped banners are almost always clear derivatives of official flags. In this instance, there appears to be no such flag.
The Swiss PTT, formed in 1920, was broken up in 1998 to form La Poste (Die Post, La Posta) and Swisscom. PTT also does not appear to have ever had a flag.
