Appenzell canton (Switzerland)

Appenzell almost went to war with St. Gallen in 1579 when a printer of that city published a calendar ornamented with the arms of the Swiss cantons, and ignorantly turned Appenzell’s bear into a female (simply by leaving off the penis). War was avoided when the printer offered abject apologies and St. Gallen destroyed every copy of the calendar they could find.

(with regard to this and this, via that daarn super-seekrit source again.)

So it would seem that the Swiss may owe some of their legendary independence and freedom from invasion and turbulence due to a willingness to fight for the right to cock-on-bear arms.
