Flag of the Duchy of Savoy

Savoy has been using a red flag with a white cross since the Middle Ages.
The flag of Savoy, red with a white cross, is a banner of its traditional arms, De gueules à la croix d'argent ("Gules a cross argent"), locally called "The Cross of Savoy" (la croix de Savoie).
The arms of Savoy have probably the same origin as the flag of the Sovereign Order of Malta. The flag may have been given by the Pope to Amédée of Savoy, when he was sent to fight the "Infidels" in the eastern part of the Mediterranean sea. A link with the Crusades is also possible.

In the XVIII century, the letters "FERT" (incorrectly rendered as "FEPT" in Encyclopaedia Britannica were added to the flag of Savoy to distinguish it from the flag of the Sovereign Order of Malta.
