Discover the island: Politics
 


The autonomous region of Sardinia
 
Sardinia has always played a central role in Italy’s political history because it was the birthplace of Italy’s major politicians (Gramsci, Segni, Cossiga) as well as being the center of the Sardinian-Piedmontese kingdom from which the present Italian state originates.


That is why Sardinia, in addition to four other Italian regions, gained its status of autonomous region.


The Autonomous Region of Sardinia was created as the Sardinians’ governing body following the election of the First Regional Council on May 8, 1949.


The new provinces
Sardinia is suddivided in 8 provinces:

besides Cagliari, Sassari, Nuoro and Oristano there are also 4 more new provinces wich are:

Olbia-Tempio (Northeast)

Ogliastra (centre of Sardinia)

Medio Campidano (Southwest)

Sulcis-Iglesiente (Southwest)
 
 


The flag
 
A red-cross and four blindfolded moors, this is the symbol of the Sardinian people.


Its origin is vague, stemming perhaps from King Peter of Aragon celebrating the victory of Alcoraz (1096) and symbolizing the help in battle of San Giorgio (red cross on white background) and the moor’s (Arab kings) heads cut off in battle.


In the mid XIV century the four moors were firstly linked to Sardinia, thus representing the kingdom within the Confederation of Aragon’s Crown (Gerle Coat of Arms).


The moors’ heads were represented in different ways: turning left, right, uncovered, crowned, blindfolded.


Presently, the four moors, wary of Piedmontese’ “illiberal” behavior toward the Sardinian People, have turned their heads and opened their eyes, no longer blindfolded.


The flag is also the symbol of the Partito Sardo d’Azione, the former Nationalist Party founded after the First World War with the intention of defending the Sardinian identity and protecting the island’s cultural aspects such as promotion and teaching of the Sardinian language.
