When the Battle of Murten ended, a runner carried a Linden branch to announce the Swiss victory over Charles the Bold.
Todays linden tree is an ofspring of the Murten linde tree in Freiburg. The tree was cultivated from a cutting. This linden tree always reminds at the victory in front of the towns gates (1476) and indirectly at the entry from Freiburg and Solothurn to the confederation (1481) after the battle.
