Flag of Marche (GIF)



The flag of Marche (Italian: Bandiera delle Marche) is a white field with the regional emblem of Marche on it, with the words "Regione Marche" ("Marche Region") in green above the emblem. The emblem of Marche bears a stylized woodpecker, overlapping a black shape to form a capital letter M, on a green-bordered shield with a white field. The woodpecker was the tribal totem of the Picentes, an Italian tribe living in most of today's Marche region. The height-to-width ratio in the flag is 2:3, and the flag was adopted on November 4, 1995. Marche is one of the twenty regions of Italy. Its capital is Ancona; its population is about 1.525 million (2019); and its area is 9,401 km².
