The flag of Italy (Italian: Bandiera d'Italia) is a tri-colored flag with three equal-sized vertical stripes: green, white, and red. The green color represents the plains and hills of the country. The white color symbolizes the snow-capped Alps. And the red color expresses the blood spilled in the Italian Independence and Unification Wars. The height-to-width ratio in the flag is 2:3, and the flag was adopted on June 18, 1946.

Its wreath-shaped emblem features a white five-pointed star, a traditional symbol of Italy; a cogwheel symbolizing work; an oak branch symbolizing Italian strength and dignity; and an olive branch symbolizing peace.

The Italian flag is waving on a flagpole rising from the globe.
