Overview

Today's NY Times reports a demonstration of Italian Unions. Accompanying the article is a photo of a crowd in Rome, brandishing brandishing CGIL banners (the former communist labor federation).
Albert S Kirsch, 29 March 2002

The red flags with CGIL and other inscriptions in white or yellow would seem to belong to the Confederazione Generale Italiana del Lavore, the Italian General Confederation of Labor.
Joe McMillan, 23 April 2002

Here is the flag of the trade union CGIL, the most important and with more members of Italy. The initials, down on the right side, are the european and world trade union confederations. The colors in the left-top corner are (with the color of the background) the italian colors.

The "support pennant" shows a "W", which probably should be rather a "double V" (not a "double U"), namely the Italian abbreviation for "Viva" ("Live!"), which is frequently shown by a double V, not adjacent to each other (like in a "W"), but slightly overlapping.

Previous Flag - variant

CGIL has also regional flags. Usually the regional flags are similar at the national flag with the name of the region. In my Region (Trentino Alto-Adige), my province (Alto Adige) has two official languages: Italian and German. For that reason our flag is different. In the flag, Alto-Adige is the Italian name of the province and Sudtirol is the name in German. The initials AGB mean Autonomer Gewerkschafts-bund (Autonomous Trade Union). I know that it is not the translation of the Italian name but however it's so. The colors in the corner are the european union colors. Below it is the former flag of CGIL of my province.
