Unofficial Flag

by Dov Gutterman and Mello Luchtenberg, 22 April 2003

There is no date of adoption for the unofficial flag of vertical white-green-white-red-white (1:1:5:1:1) with shield in center. It was used in 1995 when the "flags" of the regions were sent to Rome on the request of the Head of state.
