History & Meaning of the Italy Flag

A tricolor flag using the Italian colors of green, white, and red was first adopted by the Cispadane Republic, a sovereign Italian state, in 1797. At this time, Italy was not a unified country but a collection of states on the Italian peninsula. This tricolor flag quickly became a symbol of Italian unification and was declared the national flag in 1861, when the states merged to form the Kingdom of Italy. This version of the flag featured the coat of arms of Savoy below a crown on the white stripe. On June 13, 1946, following the events of World War II, the Italian Republic was founded, and the design we know today was ratified in the nation’s constitution.

The tricolor design is based on the French flag, adopted during the French Revolution. Each color has a specific meaning: Green represents the Italian landscape and human rights, such as social equality and freedom; red is for love and the blood of the Wars of Italian Independence and Unification; and white symbolizes faith and the snowy Alps.
