What do the colors in Italian clothes mean?

There may be many different, conflicting meanings behind the color choices that Italians make in their clothing. Sometimes, there are cultural or political meanings. These meanings tend to be specific to a locality or a region. So a meaning in one area may not be generalizable to another. But whatever the local or regional interpretation, the colors of green, red, and white are perceived as patriotic affirmations of an Italian national spirit. Indeed, these are the colors of the Italian flag.
