Swiss communities around the world take out their flags, traditional costumes and painted lanterns to celebrate Swiss National Day (August 1) each year. The same goes for Swiss ex-pats living in the Brazilian state of São Paulo. Four Swiss immigrant families started it all when they founded the “Colonia Helvetia” 122 years ago in the town of Indaiatuba.
