The flag of Italy, known as “Il Tricolore,” consists of three vertical stripes of equal width stripes of green on the left, white in the middle, and red on the right. The green symbolizes the country’s plains and hills.  The white represents the snow-capped Alps, and the red signifies the bloodshed during the Italian Wars of Independence.

The flag’s design, dating back to the 18th century, associates with Italy’s struggle for unity and independence. The Tricolore became the official flag of the Kingdom of Italy in 1946. Today, it stands as a proud symbol of Italy’s history, culture, and national identity.
