The official flag of the municipality of Le Juch was created in 1999 by Bernard Le Brun. The flag includes the arms of the Barons of Le Juch (whose lineage extincted at the end of the XVth century) "Azure, a lion Argent armed and lampassed Gules". The four ermine spots represent the four sections of the municipality. The cross, here blue, recalls the Breton flag in the Crusades times (black cross on a white field), because the Barons of Le Juch have participated to the Crusades. The soldiers from the glazik (blue) country, to which Le Juch belongs, are supposed to have worn blue crosses.
The flag was officially presented on Sunday 4 April 1999 during the celebrations of the 100th anniversary of the creation of the municipality. There is also a vertical version of the flag.
