The secret flag
La bandiera clandestina

With the Restoration, the national flag is banned. Between 1815 and 1848 the Secrete Societies organized according to the rules of Massoneria, go on struggling against the political restored regimes. The colours used during the period of he sectarian uprisings are the Carbonari is ones: black, red and turquoise. The Tricolore flag was not to be raised again until the 1831 insurrection in the Duchies and in the Papal State. In that year the “Tricolore flag” waves again in Bologna, Modena, Parma, Reggio Emilia and in Umbria Region, but only for few weeks.
