According to Roberto Breschi presentation titled: "The Small Italian States Which Lasted Beyond 1700" at ICV 19 (York,2001), Principality of Torriglia flag was coat of arms on white. There are no evidence to the putative flag of yellow over white charged with a crowned eagle.

Torriglia was not a republic but a feudal principality located on the mountains of Genoa's hinterland, ruled by Doria family from 1547 to 1797, when it merged into Ligurian Republic. Its flag was the standard of Doria house, the coat of arms on a white background. An armorial conjectural flag is also reported, yellow over white charged with the Doria's eagle, but there are no clear evidences of its existence.
