The colors of the flag of Sicily are yellow and red which divide the flag diagonally. Yellow is for Palermo and red symbolizes Corleone. Corleone was the first Sicilian town to follow Palermo in the revolt against the Angevins, the French royal house that controlled Sicily in the 13th century. The flag was first carried during this time by the Sicilian Vespers on their anti-French uprising. The Triskele is a folklore figure with three legs. Historians believed that its origin dated even prior to the Greater Greece colonization of the island. There are a few interpretations about the meaning of the emblem and why does the Sicilian flag have 3 legs. Based on studies from other ancient cultures, the three legs stand for the sun god in his triple form of spring, summer, and winter.
