Trying to identify an Italian bike saddle

Sadly, my and my wire's road bikes were stolen in downtown L.A. a few nights ago. Pretty devastating, but we're getting over it and starting to shop for new bikes.

A few years ago, after trying many different saddles, I bought an Italian model that was very comfortable. I want to get the same one again but can't recall the manufacturer. It had a long slot in the center, was fairly narrow, and I'm pretty sure it was made in Italy. The most distinctive thing is that it had a little flag or tag hanging from the back, with the brand name and maybe some stripes, that was about 3/8" wide and 3" long. It sort of flapped in the breeze behind me as I rods along.

Does this ring a bell with anyone? I know it's not much to go on but maybe someone else has this model. That little flag thing makes it kind of distinctive from the back. Thanks in advance.
