    Regional Flag

    I lack of any date concerning the gonfalon and the coat of arms of the region. The coat of arms is quartered: in the first and the fourth, argent a Trento eagle sable armed or; in the second and the third, argent an eagle of Tyrol gules armed or. The gonfalon is vertically blue and white with the coat of arms in the middle. On the blue field, above and under are written the words Regione Trentino-Alto Adige, on the white field the words Region Trentino-Südtirol in gold. There isn’t any official flag.

    gonfanon adopted by presidencial decree 21 March 1983.

    The official Alto-Adige/Sudtyrol flag has the shield of the arms on it so it is different from Austrian Tyrol flag, but I saw also flown the latter.

    I had the possibility to see the flag of the Trentino-Alto Adige region. It is white over light blue with the coat of arms of the region in the center.It seems to be unofficial

    The only place where I ever have seen hanging the flag of the Autonomous Region Trentino-Alto Adige, is the Palace of the Region in Trento.

    Ladins in South Tyrol

    An important flag used in Alto-Adige is the flag of ladin people: horizontal blue-white-green. Sometimes it can be seen with local civic arms on it.

    Giuseppe Bottasini described the a flag from as "Ladins in South Tyrol, Italy" 2:3 (Vertical 3: lightblue, white, lightgreen). Interesting pattern, no? The austrian tyrolians fly a horizontal tricolor, while the italian tyrolians fly a vertical one .I wander about the different blue shades, though.

    "Patrje Ladine (Ladins) - North Italy." - Horizontal blue-white-green.
    AFAIK There are ca. 30,000 ladin speakers in Italian Su''dtirol and a
    few of them in some valleys of Rhetian Alps (Switzerland). Flag similar to Aran (Spain).This flag is listed under number 46 at the chart "Flags of Aspirant Peoples" [asp]

    I found a picture of the Ladin flag flying at the La Usc Di Ladins site which is an online Ladin language journal .The flag can be found at:

    About the Ladin flag they told me the following meaning of the colours: The flag symbolizes the landscape: blue for the sky, white for the mountains and green for the meadows.
    Karl Palfrader, 11 August 2001

    According to, the flag was created in 1920 during a meeting of Ladins. The text also confirms what has already been stated regarding the meaning of the colors of the Ladin flag: blue for the sky, white for the mountains and green for the meadows.
