Royal Standard of the king of Italy from circa 1905 onward
by Theo van der Zalm, 10 July 2000

It is almost identical to those shown in Flaggenbuch 1939, except that here the shade of blue appears to be darker
Santiago Dotor, 11 July 2000

After 1880 until 1946 the standards were defined as for Royal Decree of 28 November 1880. The Royal Standard was square, blue, with a crowned eagle amid, the shield of Savoy on his breast, all encircled by the collar of SS. Annunziata. A royal crown in each corner

Flaggenbuch shows a flag similar to Simon's image, with a few differences probably not too significant, except the shade of blue, which is much darker in Flaggenbuch (more or less similar to the shade used for British flags) and the lack of fringe around the flag. The same flag, but swallow-tailed, is shown in Flaggenbuch as Prince's Standard.

Simon's image is incorrect. An imperial German 1892-1918 eagle combined with a 'generic' style of royal crown and a collar which does not show the 'FERT' acronym of the House of Savoy. The scan of the Royal Standard is more accurate.

Standard of the Crownprince 1880 - 1946


by Theo van der Zalm, 10 July 2000

Royal Standard of the Crownprince of Italy from circa 1905 onward.
Theo van der Zalm, 10 July 2000

It is almost identical to those shown in Flaggenbuch 1939, except that here the shade of blue appears to be darker and the swallowtail of the Prince's flag has a right angle cut-out.
Santiago Dotor, 11 July 2000

After 1880 until 1946 the standards were defined as for Royal Decree of 28 November 1880.The Gagliardetto dei Principi (ie Princeps Standard)was the same as the Standard of the King , but swallow tailed and without crowns in the corners.
