Turin Province Flag

Turin Province flag : white flag with a blue border and the coat of arms in the middle (not officially approved).
Pascal Vagnat, 28 July 1999

Currently, the Province of Turin uses two unofficial flags both bearing the coat of  arms adopted in 1930 (red (gules) with a white (argent) cross and an azure lambel surmounted by the Italian provincial crown) in the center, but with different backgrounds. In the 1990s when in Italy local administrative governments realized gonfalon was not enought for them, Turin Province began to display a white flag bordered blue (and arms) as the gonfalon device; this symbol is so widespreadly used, in public ceremonies etc. to be considered commonly the flag of the Province. Nevertheless above the main entrance of the Province head building in Turin, three poles fly the flag of Italy in the place of honor, the flag of the European Union and the flag of the Province consisting of an entirely blue field (with the arms).
It may be of interest to note that in reality this coat of arms, with roots far into the past, is the symbol of the whole Piedmont (with Turin chief town too) dating from 1424. At that time Duke of Savoy, in order to emphasize the western Po Plain was under his rule, a fact many neighbours had hard time accepting, granted to the eldest son personal signs of authority: the title of "Prince of Piedmont" and the arms consisting of the ones of Savoy differenced by an azure label. This emblem gradually was viewed as the symbol of Piedmont, from which in the XIX century this dynasty will play major roles in the events which led to the birth of the Italian state.
Nevertheless also, during the Kingdom of Italy (1861-1946) the intermediate level of administration was only the Province, Region having no form of self government, thus this symbol was officially granted to Turin Province as in ancient times the name "Piedmont" was associated with this smaller area. Finally the Republic gave the Regions political and administrative significance, Piedmont assuming responsibility over some local affairs, so this historical coat of arms was (re-)instituted  by new Region as well and lives in two territorial divisions today, but Piedmontese shield (1984) has a blue border, like the flag (1995), and a squared shape.
Rosario Francesco Raunisi, 16 September 2003

On the occasion of the XX Olympic Winter Games, the entirely blue flag with the provincial coat of arms in the center that was hoisted at the main building of the Province of Turin, had been replaced with a flag of a white background bordered blue and the arms in the center. So the Province of Turin has ceased to use two different flag backgrounds, as reported previously.
