The Italian Flag was officially adopted on January 21, 1919. The national flag of Italy is a tricolor flag which features three equally sized vertical stripes of green, white and red color. The green stripe is located at the hoist side of the Italian Flag .

The green color of the flag of Italy stands for the plains and the hills of Italy. The white color of the Italy flag picture stands for the snowy Alps, and red for the blood spilt in the Italian Independence wars.

There is also a religious interpretation of these colors in the flags of Italy, to which green represents hope, white represents faith and red represents charity.
