Bande Nere

conjectural flags based on information provided by Robbie Rodiss that an eye witness is recorded as stating that some o the black bande's captains had flags with 4 devils embroidered on them and the motto ;In dispecto tuo christo.

  2. Great stuff! The excellent study of the Black Bands following Giovannis death by Maurizio Arfaioli does indeed state that they bore flags saying "in spite of you christ" in Latin.
