The cover of [sie63] shows what the book describes as approximately a quarter of a flagchart, one of many to roll of the, mostly Dutch, presses for the use of seafarers: "Tableau des Pavillons que la Plupart des Nations arborent a` la Mer. Faitau de'po^t des cartes et plans de la marine pour le service des vaisseaux du Roy par ordre de M. de Machault, Garde de se'aux de France. Par le Sr. Bellin Inge'nieur de la marine. 1756." [beL56].
On the 3rd row from the bottom there is "Pav. de Livourne" - A white flag with a narrow malthese cross with arced ends, with at each end a disc as wide as the arm fitting the arc, but not quite touching it, all red.

1848 Flag


from <www.provincia.livorno.it>

At <www.provincia.livorno.it> you can see the flag of Livorno (battle flag?)  in 1848. The inscription is "LIVORNO NELLA PRIMA GUERRA DI INDIPENDENZA - Bandiera tricolore con stemma granducale lorenense". As I understand it is the tricolour charged with the Lorain Archdukes arms...
