Repatriation of the remains of our late Consul General Marco Nobili

The repatriation of the remains of Consul General Marco Nobili will take place on January 27.

Flags at Parliament buildings in Victoria will be flown at half-mast from sunrise to sunset on January 27. As part of this tribute by the Province of British Columbia the Italian flag will be flown on the courtesy flagpole

In addition, the City of Vancouver will fly the Canadian flag atop City-Hall at half-mast from sunrise to sunset tomorrow. As part of this tribute, City Hall will also be illuminated green, white and red, the national colours of Italy, this evening.

Both are gestures of support for Consul General Nobili’s family and the Italian community in Vancouver in recognition of his significant contributions, despite his brief posting.
