On 21 December 1971 a contest was started. 77 proposals were presented and examined on 8 Setember 1972. On 10 July 1973 The oficial regional Bulletin published that the winner was the number 25. On 28 September 1973 the emblem was adopted and published. The design was made by Gino and Alberto Anselmi, architecs from Napoles. The gonfanon, green with the emblem, seems that wasn't never manufactured

The gonfalon and the emblem were adopted on the 30 October 1973 and not on 28 September 1973. The emblem is a stylised and graphical representation of the three candles of the city of Gubbio, in red colour fimbriated white on a white rectangular field. The gonfalon is green with the emblem in the middle with the words « Regione Umbria » written in red. There isn't any official flag.

I can inform you that the 3 images in red contained in the gonfalon of Umbria represent the "Ceri", wood towers of about 500 kg., used in the historical-folkloristic fest of St.Ubaldo, celebrated since 13th century, on 15th may, in Gubbio (Umbria).

It looks like Region Umbria has really not an own flag. That leaves only the gonfalon. It is strange because above is written that the gonfalon has red words on it, but of all the rare pictures I could find on the net there were only pictures of a gonfalon without the words.

According to <www.flagsonline.it> the flag is green and charged with the emblem and adopted in 2003.
