Beneath the gilded spire called a flèche on the Rathaus is a statue of a Swiss Pikeman. They were mercenary soldiers during the Middle Ages and Renaissance. In the battlements are the coat of arms from the 12 cantons that constituted the Swiss Confederation in 1504 when this stunning town hall was built in Basel, Switzerland.
