The Republic of Alba was proclaimed on 25 April 1796. The flag
was designed by Juan Antonio Ranza who said that the
blue and red were for France and the orange is devoted to the
tree of the Piedmont's shield. On 19 April 1801 the republic was
annexed to France. The colours are reported as horizontal and
also as vertical.
