Coat of Arms of Ticino, or Tessin in German. Well, it is the only italian speaking Canton in Switzerland. Only exception are the southern valleys of Graubünden, where they also speak Italian. Graubünden is the only Canton with three languages!!!
I like your draws of the coats of arms . I saw this before because i like soccer very much and some day looking for information about it on internet i find that theres an argentinian team called Tigre that uses red and blue in its jersey because one of his original members who participated in the foundation of the club was born in Ticino . Is a good idea to draw the simbols of every Canton in Switzerland , congratulations !
I watch the uruguayan championship of soccer and some of european and argentinian soccer too but perhaps when i was a child i was more fanatic than now. Now i keep the fanatism only when i watch the games of Nacional , my uruguayan team n_n .I will post comments soon in the other coats of arms too , kisses and congratulations again !.
Alright! I am not a too big of a soccer fan myself. I only am a soccer fan for... patriotic reasons. Well, I suppose you mean the national team by Nacional. We in Switzerland call our national team shortly "Nati", (unfortunately) spelled like the German "Nazi"... but yeah. It is the short for Nationalmannschaft, or national team. Alas, we Swiss do not have much to brag about in terms of soccer. Only thing I can think of that we were the only one to beat the would-be European champion Spain in the last European Championship. But, we Swiss are great when it goes to Skiing... Simon Amman having won twice a double Olympian Gold, and with skiiers like Didier Cuche, Carlo Janka, Didier Defago and Dario Cologna always being in the top part of the ranks. And we have Roger Federer... (*fangirl squeal* FEEEEDIIIIIIIII!!!) I think Federer is one of the most famous Swiss people ever. I am so proud of him. But, I fear, once Federer is gone, there won't be any Swiss in the world top ten for a long time... But Federer at least will never be forgotten. For that, he was too great a tennis player. Hm, if I recall, Uruguay has always done well in soccer, didn't it?
Nacional is really the name of my favourite local team , the club was named Nacional because it was the first club here created by uruguayans in 1899. The other clubs of that times were created by english inmigrants. Uruguayan soccer was better in past times but fortunately in the world cup 2010 Uruguay played a bit better , the people was very happy and went a lot of times after the matches to the center of Montevideo to celebrate n_n. In Switzerland soccer i know Grasshoppers , i think is the most succesfull swiss team but i know fc Basel too . And talking about players i remember Stefan Chapuisat as one of the best with Sutter and Sforza too .In the olimpic games of 1924 Switzerland won the silver medal in soccer and in Switzerland took part the 1954 world cup , was one of the best world cups n_n . Uruguay was fourth in that cup. Federer is a great tennis player !! he is a record man and he looks like a very serious and kind person n_n , the matches against Nadal are very interesting . Uruguay in tennis never had great success , here the most successfull sport apart from soccer is basket but like the soccer , the basket in past times had more success than now. Kisses for you n_n .
Ah, alright. Hey hey, but you really know one thing or another about soccer. That you know the Grasshoppers, FC Basel and Chiriaco Sforza... Chapeau. I could only name one or two international teams, like Chelsea from England, Real Madrid, FC Barcelona, InterMilano... that's about it... Let alone some local team from Uruguay. Ah, about soccer I really don't know anything. I am not even familiar with the teams from Switzerland. Know a name or two, that's all. -.-"
Dont worry , during my life i have suffered a lot of times for a bad soccer result jaja but really theres more important things in life than soccer.In southamerica we are soccer fans perhaps because soccer give us happyness than other things never give us in the same way , the people sometimes is angry with the politicians and explote shouting a goal , is a way to feel better sometimes.
Yes, you are right. Emotions need a ventile to get out, else one explodes. Unless one has a great deal of willpower... Which I dare say I have. I live with someone who has made me almost explode so many times, I afterwards always wonder how I managed to keep my mouth shut. But, I think I have no other choice... if we clashed, she might leave, and I couldn't live with the consequences that would have. So, I have no other choice to keep quiet. But let's forget this. Yep, yep, there shure are more important things in life than soccer. I agree totally. On the other hand, people need distraction.
ich freue mich auf diese Zeichnung (meistens weil ich vom Tessin bin )
for everyone who doesnt know Ticino this canton has italian as official language, which in Graubunden is only co-official (same for Retoromanch with German as official) btw we have to learn almost french and/or german (national lang.), and now english too Tessin is the name in French and in Romanch too in English sounds Ticino better (pronounce: tee'chEE'no)
