ICV 24 - International Congress of Vexillology, Day 2 - 11th Presentation by Marcus E.V. Schmoger, Germany

Day 2 - Speaker #13

The eleventh presentation was given by Marcus E.V. Schmoger and was entitled Political Party Flags of San Marino.

Schomoger gave us a vivid account about the story behind the Arms of San Marino and its use by political parties in San Marino, a little known micro-nation within Italy. The pattern is similar to Croatia with socialist and communist parties using traditionally red, and now white. But the common theme irrespective of party affiliation is the use of the three towers that can be found on the national coat of arms for San Marino.
