Antony Noghès (September 13, 1890 in Py, Pyrénées-Orientales, Languedoc-Roussillon, France  – August 2, 1978 in Monte Carlo, Monaco)  was the founder of the Monaco Grand Prix.
He also helped create the Rallye Monte-Carlo in 1911.
He suggested the international adoption of the checkered flag to end races.
Since 1979, the last turn of the Monaco circuit (the former "Gazometer turn") just before the finish line, has been named "Virage Antony Noghès" after him.
As "Agent general de la Regie des tabacs" he was the Director of the Public administration responsible for the management of the monopoly of procurement, manufacturing, and selling of tobacco in the Principality.
He was the father of Alexandre-Athenase Noghès, and the grandfather of Elisabeth-Anne, Christian Louis, and Christine Alix de Massy. His other son, Gilles-Alexandre, was Monaco's first ambassador to the United States
