Zenit agency (27 April 2005 <> ) gives a detailed report of the first general audience given by Pope Benedict XVI on 27 April on St. Peter's Square in Rome. Among the 15,000 participants to the ceremony, 1,000 came from the diocese of Nursia, where St. Benedict came from. After his election, the Pope explained the choice of his name as a reference to St. Benedict and Pope Benedict XV. When the Pope saluted St. Benedict, "the flag of Nursia was frenetically waved over the crowd".
There is no report about the design of the flag of Nursia.
