Rome Flag

Note: According to Andre' Serranho site, the flag has reversed colors.

The current flag of Roma was adopted 1860 and its red and yellow vertical.
Jaume Olle' , 31 October 1998

I have just been at Rome and passed in the front of the Campidoglio (the town hall). Three flags are hung: the European, the Italian and the proper of the city. The last one is a vertical bicolor red-yellow, 2:3 ratio (like the Italian flag). The shade of red is quite dark, the yellow tends toward gold.
Giuseppe Bottasini, 3 December 1998

Isn't that one showed with golden letters on red. Couldn't it be that the flag Giuseppe reported is in fact "landsefarben" of the SPQR flag? Though, that is not a custom in Apeninian peninsula, but who knows.
Zeljko Heimer , 5 December 1998

It seems that none anwsered my theory above . However, the photo on page 233 of [zna99] show the flag at town hall (I guess the same place where Giuseppe saw the vertical bicolour). This flag is the same dark shaded bicolour but with the coat of arms in the middle - an oval shaped shield of bright red with diagonally set inscription in yellow +SPQR al in yellow ornamented and crowned "cartouche". The colours of the CoA and those of the two flag fields are notably different.
