Unbelievable, they want remove the Trinacria from our flag! PDF Print E-mail

PALERMO - It was illustrated this morning in Palermo, from the local authorities, a draft law of popular initiative for the removal of the emblem of the Trinacria on the flag of Sicilian Region. There are two main reasons that drove the signers of the initiative: the non-exclusivity of the symbol of Trinacria, still used to represent other countries and parties, including the Isle of Man, in the North Sea, the origins of the symbol, explicable mythology, "in contrast - say subscribers - to the culture and essence of Christianity, who want to absolutely preserve".

"The initiative - says Sandro Oliveri, vice president of the City Council of Palermo, acting as spokesman for the group of subscribers - wants to raise awareness of the Sicilians who believe deeply in Christian values to come together in this first proposal. Of course, many other events will follow, help to restore and put at the center of social life the principles of Christianity in an age where secularization is having a marked moral decay, a social, political and economic decay".
