The Triskelion, known in Sicily also as the Trinacria, is the three-legged woman that symbolises Sicily. First adopted in 1282 by the Sicilian Vespers, it is currently the official flag of the autonomous Sicilian region.
Officially, the Trinacria became the Sicilian flag in 1943, during the World War II. The leader of the independence movement, Andrea Finocchiaro Aprile, was the first to adopt this symbol. During WWII, the Sicilian independentists helped the Allies to land in the coasts. After winning the war, the Allies helped Sicily become independent from Italy.
