Beginning in 2004, SMEG's famous FAB line of retro-style refrigerators has been expanding beyond simple colors into patriotic and proud flag patterns. In North America, a trio of flags are represented.
- The British Union Flag, more-commonly called the "Union Jack," joined the line for its unique and ever-popular vexillological pattern, frequently thought of in-conjunction with memories of 1950s and 1960s beatnik-and-Beatle-infused "Swinging London," the perfectly-fab association for SMEG's FAB refrigerator.
- The Italian "Il Tricolore" FAB flag pattern, the flag of the modern Italian Republic, speaks to SMEG's own Italian roots, and embrace of "Made in Italy" style.
- And finally, the Stars and Stripes themselves, the American flag, is represented in its own special flag pattern FAB, a tip of the hat to SMEG USA's adoptive home in the United States, and the long friendship and cultural exchange between the US and Italy that first brought SMEG to these shores.
