Italian Flag History
Italy has been a cultural center for centuries but was not united as one country under one flag until 1861. In the late 18th century, many European nations took inspiration from the French tricolor flag and adopted this bold and easily identifiable design.
The Italian flag history includes a non-traditional square shape that eventually morphed into the current rectangular design. The eagle of Napoleon was added to the center of the flag until the end of his rule in 1814. Variations such as the Maritime Italy Ensign flag are still used today.
Il Tricolour was officially adopted in 1948 and is celebrated every January 7, Tricolor Day.
Italian Flag Meaning
Over centuries of use, the green, red and white of the Italian flag have been said to represent a variety of Italian values and cultural significance.
Green symbolizes social equality, freedom and hope. It is also a nod to the lush green fields of the Italian landscape.
Red represents love and charity and acknowledges the blood spilled in the formation of the nation.
White traditionally symbolizes faith. It also recalls the white snow-capped Alps.
*Flags with pole sleeve and fringe should be used on our indoor mounting sets. These flags are not designed for hanging on wall or outdoor flagpoles. Any flag with pole sleeve & fringe is finished with lined pole sleeves, leather tabs, and golden yellow fringe on 3 sides.
