Statesman Tie’s Italy tie was designed to represent the Italian Flag. The design takes elements from the Italian flag and mixes them together to create a tie that can be worn at any time for any occasion.
“The flag of Italy (bandiera d’Italia, often referred to in Italian as il Tricolore [il trikoˈloːre]) is a tricolour featuring three equally sized vertical pales of green, white and red, with the green at the hoist side. Its current form has been in use since 18 June 1946 and was formally adopted on 1 January 1948.
Some have attributed particular values to the colours, and a common interpretation is that the green represents the country’s plains and the hills; white, the snow-capped Alps; and red, blood spilt in the Wars of Italian Independence. A more religious interpretation is that the green represents hope, the white represents faith, and the red represents charity; this references the three theological virtues.” (Source: here)
When designing the tie, we used colors from the flag and combined them with the color that is most commonly used with the national sports teams of Italy: blue (or Azzurro). The flag has vertical green, white and red lines, so we laid those lines on top of the Italian blue and created our Italy tie. We think it turned out classy and something we think represents Italy well.
The Italy tie is a great gift for missionaries, businessmen, and anyone who loves Italy.
