According to Roberto Breschi presantation titled: "The Small Italian States Which Lasted Beyond 1700" at ICV 19 (York,2001), the Republic of Noli (today in Savona Prov., Liguria) used white cross on red flag (opposite to Genoa) since the 13th cent. and until 1797 when Noli was taken by Napoleon.
Some times they also used a "short"  cross (whose arms didn't reach the flsg's sides) and also same cross on swallotail flag with two patron saints symbols.
