The Pontifical Swiss Guard is a small force maintained by the Holy See that is responsible for the safety of the Pope, including the security of the Apostolic Palace. The Swiss Guard serves as the de facto military of Vatican City. Established in 1506 under Pope Julius II, the Pontifical Swiss Guard is among the oldest military units in continuous operation.

The dress uniform is blue, red, orange, and yellow with a distinctly Renaissance appearance. The modern guard has the role of the bodyguard of the Pope. The Swiss Guard is equipped with traditional weapons, such as the halberd, as well as modern firearms. Recruits to the guards must be unmarried Swiss Catholic males between 19 and 30 years of age who have completed basic training with the Swiss Armed Forces.
