Sometime in the 12th and 13th centuries, the various
settlements in the Veneto mountains formed themselves into
self-governing federations.These were the 13 communes in the
northern Verona Hills and the 7 communes in the Asiago plateau.
There are smaller Cimbri communities in Belluno and Trento
Provinces. Both of the larger groups formed loose aliances with
the city of Venice, mostly for trade purposes.
The flag above is based on the coat of arms and reported by Jaume Ollé's "Flag Report" and Mikael Badlore-Penlaez's webside - Eurominority.
There is a flag attributed to Cimbri of the 13 Communities at Padanian websites with the the Sole delle Alpi. This flag is in question and should be dealt with caution. There is no other report about its use or mere existance.
