with FREE Postcard
The Italian flag has a rectangular shape vertically divided into three equal sections: green, white and red. The three colors of the flag represent, symbolically, the three cardinal virtues:
Green = Hope... White = Faith... Red = Charity
The Tricolor was first adopted in 1796 by the Lombard patriots and became the symbol of Freedom and Unity. It was sanctioned as National Flag by the Italian Republic in 1802, by the Italic Kingdom in 1804 and by the first King of the Savoia dynasty, Carlo Alberto, in March 1848.
Since the first time it was adopted, the Tricolor has remained the symbol of Independence from foreign rulers for all Italians, who fought several battles during the period known as the "Risorgimento," until they succeeded in securing freedom and unity.
The national tricolor is honored at all public events. When displayed with other flags it occupies the place of honor, that is at the highest point or to the right. The flag is raised at dawn, lowered at sunset, and flown at half mast in times of mourning.
Never burn or deface the Italian flag... the Italian law provides the punishment of one to three years in prison.
