Lucca (merchant flag), 1819-1820
The Duchy of Lucca’s merchant flag looked like this for a short time. The red and gold cross doesn’t really look like any other flag or coat of arms that the Duchy ever used, so I’m not sure where it came from or why it was abandoned so quickly.
Parma and Piacenza, 1851-1859
After the Revolutions of 1848, the traditional blue and yellow colours of the Duchy of Parma were always arranged in a simple geometric pattern. The last form of the national flag was this blue and yellow gyronny with a red border. After 1859, the state became a part of Sardinia-Piedmont, which two years later would become the Kingdom of Italy.

Aosta Valley, since 1947
This Italian region has a kind of intimidating red and black flag. The colours come from the coat of arms of the town of Aosta.
King of Italy, 1880-1946
Nowadays blue is most commonly associated with the Italian soccer team, but it used to be the colour of the House of Savoy, which ruled Italy until the end of World War II. This was the second Italian royal standard, and they both had blue as the main colour. This one also included a variety of royal doodads and whatsits.

Italy (civil ensign), since 1947
Though it may look like a coat of arms, the shield on Italy’s civil ensign is not actually the national emblem. Instead it’s a quartering of the arms of the four great maritime republics of Italian history: Venice, Genoa, Amalfi, and Pisa. The flag of the Italian Navy has the same shield topped by a naval crown.
