Flag of Italy (GIF)

The flag of Italy (Italian: Bandiera d'Italia), known as the "Tricolore," is a simple yet powerful design featuring three vertical stripes of equal width: green on the left, white in the middle, and red on the right. These colors hold deep symbolism, with green symbolizing hope and the Italian landscape, white representing peace and purity, and red symbolizing valor and the bloodshed in the struggle for independence and unification. The Tricolore has been a symbol of Italy's unity and identity since the 19th century, when the country was unified, making it not only a representation of the nation's history but also a testament to its enduring commitment to freedom, peace, and prosperity.
