Flag of Apulia (GIF)



The Apulia flag (Italian: Bandiera della Puglia) is a white flag with the words "Regione Puglia" ("Apulia Region") above the coat of arms in the middle of the flag, with green and red vertical stripes on the right and left of the coat of arms. Apulia's coat of arms consists of a shield with the crown of Frederick II above.

The six green coins above represent the six provinces of Apulia. The octagon represents the castle of Castel del Monte, built by Frederick II. The olive tree is a symbol of peace and brotherhood and is a common feature of the Apulian countryside. The green and red stripes on the white background refer to the national flag of Italy. The height-to-width ratio in the flag is 2:3, and the flag was adopted on August 10, 2001. Apulia is a region in southern Italy. Its capital is Bari; its population is approximately 4.029 million (2019); and its area is 19,541 km².
