I can show you the flag of the Swiss National Front (Front National). This party
was founded in the early 1930s in Zurich. Its publication was "La Voix Nationale"
(The national voice). After a lot of political troubles, this far-right party
was dissolved in 1940. The "total" Swiss cross is present on a lot right-far
flags from these time of the 1930s.

These flags with the throughout cross were used also after the war up to the
present by such groups, although in recent news reports I only noticed the
official Swiss flag (and cantonal flags) used by them. The Nationale Front was
founded in 1933 as a merger of different right wing groups. That time with its
growth and founding of such groups in Switzerland is called "Frontenfrühling"
(springtime of fronts). In 1935 the (Swiss German) Nationale Front and the
(Swiss French) Union Nationale could send each 1 member to the national
parliament but only for four years.
