Festa del Tricolore, Meloni: “Sew up the tears”. Mattarella: “Flag symbol of unity”


“Sewing up what is torn, re-knotting the threads of our being together, rediscovering ourselves as a community: this is the path we intend to follow to free the nation’s best energies and make Italy even more of a protagonist in Europe and in the world”, said the premier on the occasion of the Flag Festival

The Tricolore is 226 years old today. In fact, the tricolor flag became the symbol of the Cispadana republic on 7 January 1797. Later adopted by the Savoys, who inserted their coat of arms in the center of the white band, the tricolor was confirmed with the advent of the Republic in 1946.

Meloni: “Sew up what is torn”

Prime Minister Meloni paid homage to the Italian flag with a message: “In a famous painting from 1920 Cafiero Filippelli paints a woman intent on mending a tricolor. An extraordinary image, a metaphor for our daily commitment,” says Meloni. “Sewing up what is torn, knotting the threads of our being together again, rediscovering ourselves as a community: this is the path we intend to follow to free the nation’s best energies and make Italy even more of a protagonist in Europe and in the world”. “The flag – continues Meloni – is the symbol of national unity, it encompasses the values ​​of freedom, solidarity and equality on which our homeland is founded and embodies that extraordinary historical, cultural and identity heritage that is universally recognized in Italy”.

Mattarella: “Tricolor symbol of unity and indivisibility”

Even the head of state Sergio Mattarella paid homage to the Italian flag: “It was January 7, 1797 when the representatives of Bologna, Ferrara, Modena and Reggio Emilia raised the first tricolor. Under these colours, with these sentiments, our ancestors, over the decades later, they fought to bring about the unification of Italy.The Tricolor flag accompanied the war of liberation and, chosen by the Constituents as the banner of the Republic, constitutes the symbol of the unity and indivisibility of the country and of that heritage of common values ​​and principles solemnly sanctioned from our Constitution”.
