Sicily's Virginia Tilt Flag

Sicily is the largest island to qualify for a Virginia Tilt flag.  A Virginia Tilt is when a place is parallel to both Europe and Africa, but has a slight tilt towards Europe, geographically speaking that is. 

The colours and design are all taken from the flag of Sicily but the basic design stems from the US flag, Jamaica and the final rebel flag to arise on Virginia Soil in 1865.
