Christmas flags


Here are a couple of historic flags (no longer in official use) that I think look rather Christmassy. Can you identify them?

I would say that they are old Italian states. Given the colours. San Marino maybe being one, but I am not sure.

It's the katanga flag 1960-1963

Sonck has correctly identified the flag of Katanga. The other flag, the tr-colour with the cross of Savoy, was the flag of Italy from 1848 to 1946. So "anonmymous" was almost correct.
