There are dark blue "Edelweiss" billboard-style titles on the mid-fuselage, over the wings, with much smaller, red "Switzerland" titles just forward of the wing root. The tail is red, with a stylised white flower with yellow circles in the centre, al outlined in blue. The same logo , in smaller form, is on the forward door, as well as the red wingtips. In the foreground, green grass is blurred into a smear, while in the background, trees and a metal tower are similarly blurred, noticable by the relative sharpness of the plane. Above it all, the sky is a pale grey.
