Demography

Venice Attractions

Venice, the capital of the Veneto district towards the northeast of Italy, along the coastline of the Po and Piave riverbanks gives justice to the fact that it belongs to the popular Monuments of World Heritage.

Venice Flag & National symbols

The Venetian Republic Flag is considered to be the most beautiful flag that was created. It is the flag that waved in the galleon of San Domenic Contarini, the Doge of Venice from 1659-1675. The colours of the flag are red and gold which were the colours of the navy, heritage from the Roman and then Byzantine Empire. The deep red is a characteristic of the Venetian navy flags as well as the military uniform. However it must be noted that the official colours of Venice are blue and gold.
