Description: green white red with Savoy arms.
Željko Heimer, 17 September 1996
The Italian tricolour was and is in the 2:3 ratio. The example
in CISV web page <www.cisv.it>
showing tricolour with the Shield of the House in square format
is a military colour, which was almost square in shape for horse

I recently landed on labarum-style flag of the Italian Red Cross,
on post card at this
Apparently introduced 17 Oct. 1920.

The postcard itself being from 1929 however, so I am
wondering, if the vexillum-style flag shown on the postcard was
really introduced in 1920. Perhaps it was only a simpler
"gonfalone" introduced in 1920, and either changed
later on or just manufactured in a more "elaborate"
