Historical Flag

The historical flag of Bormio is mentioned in a article in Italian by Marco Foppoli at <web.tiscali.it/bormio>. It seems that it was adopted following the Coat of Arms (which followed Como's) sometime in the 13-14th century. The flag is white St. George cross on red. In the image at the article it appears as swallow-tail (as hoisted above the castle tower), but I guess it was usually used in rectangle shape. As I understand it, the flag was abandoned in 1797, and the writer is mourn that the town don't use it today.

According to that webpage, in the early 13th century Bormio was subject to the lordship of Como and thus "inherited" its arms, which in turn was derived from the Imperial "Blutfahne" as was the case with other cities allied with the Emperor, such as Novara and Pavia.
