What are the history and meaning of the Moorish-headed flag?

Completely black and with a white bandana above his eyes... Here is the famous Moor's head, a well-known Corsican lucky symbol.

One thing is certain: the one we call the Bandera Corsica in the local language is associated with passion and freedom.

For centuries, Corsica had to endure attacks from Moorish pirates, sometimes bloody. Looting, kidnappings and ransoms, we understand why the inhabitants of the island of beauty could hate them.

During their victories, the Corsicans had the habit of decapitating the invaders and putting their heads on pikes then placed along the entire coastline of the island. The Moor's head would thus have become a symbol of the defense of this fierce people.

Some historians say instead that this blindfolded face refers to Saint Maurizio, an Egyptian saint.

Whatever its origin, one thing is certain: the Moor's head flag (or Bandera Corsica) was adopted as the emblem of the Corsican Republic in 1755 by General Pasquale di Paoli.

After its attachment to the Republic, this standard fell into disuse. It was only recently, around the 1980s, that the Moor's head flag once again became the Corsican symbol that we know.

So, do you feel close to the values ​​of struggle and freedom that this banner conveys?
