Republic of Alba
|This article does not cite any references or sources. (December 2009)|
Lacking any effective control of its land, the municipality is remembered for two reasons, the first being the partisan Republic of Alba which took its name during World War II, the second one is its flag, designed by the jacobin Juan Antonio Ranza, who said that the blue and red were for France while the orange is taken to the tree of the Piedmont's shield. The flag existed in both horizontal and vertical tricolour versions, and it is used nowadays on some occasions by Region Piedmont.
