CURRENT ARMY RANK FLAGS
 

Notes
 

Current Italian Army rank flags are similar to those used up to 1946 by the Kingdom of Italy. Since the rank of Marshal of Italy no longer exists, four stars now denote a General of Army and three stars denote a General of Army Corps. The flags for General of Division and General of Brigade were not changed. The number of stars for each rank corresponds to the US/NATO rank structure.

A General of Army Corps with a special appointment (e.g. command of an army or in a senior staff position) has a flag with a horizontal line beneath the three stars denoting his rank. The Chief of Staff of the Army—who usually holds the rank of General of Army—has a flag with the stars inside a frame. 

Flag Proportions: Italian Army rank flags are made in 2:3 proportions.
