This is the municipal flag of my town, Varazze, Italy, Liguria region. The flag is in official use and hoisted on pubblic buildings, on the city hall , alone or near the national flag. It derives from the coat of arms of the town: a green field rappresenting the sea (verde mare), with a white V letter. This part of the coat of arms was in use from the XII th century, when the commune was created (Comunitas varaginensis). After, in the XVI th century, the Genoa top was added to rappresent the agreement with the Genoa Republic. The correct proportions of the flag are 2 : 3, like the Italian national flag.
