No, it's not by MVRDV, the Swiss cross at the Swiss beach in Vienna, image by anarchitecture.

The white cross in the center of a red square is definitely one of the most iconic national flag in design – and perfectly useful for buildings. Like the little container pavilion to promote the Swiss football team at the Swiss beach during the euro 2008 tournament in Vienna. Bad luck, the Swiss team has lost the opening game at the St Jacob's Park Stadium (designed by Herzog and de Meuron) in Basel 0:1.
