Flag of Corsica (GIF)


Corsica is an island in the Mediterranean Sea in the south-east of France and is one of the 18 regions of France with a population of about 330,000.

The flag of Corsica is a white flag with a black man's head from the side profile in the middle. It shows a Moor's head wearing a white bandanna on the forehead on a white background. Previously, the bandana closed his eyes; Pasquale di Paoli, a Corsican patriot, suggested that the bandanas should be worn on the forehead to symbolize the liberation of Corsicans from Genoa. The height-to-width ratio in the flag is 3:5, and the flag was adopted in 1755.
