Italy Flag

The explanation for the symbols of the Italian Flag

The Italian flag was adopted for the first time January 7, 1797 by the Cispadane Republic. It consists in three horizontal stripes : green - white - red. In 1796, when Napoleon Bonaparte won battles through Italy, the first flag was born on the French flag base : tricolor. To distinguish from French, italians will often change their colours, while keeping the same base. Different interpretations are accepted for current colours symbolism. It is said that the Italians have chosen these colours referring to those Lombardsí uniforms, who helped and joined Napoleon in his various quests throughout the country. Another interpretation is closer to what is generally accepted for the flags, the colours each have a meaning: green for the vast lands of Apennines, white for the snow covering the Alps in North Western Italy, and red for the blood of independence leaders, shed during the nineteenth century revolutions.
