The first arms (1173) of the archbishopric of Dol were red with lozenges of ermine. Later, those arms were changed for a blazon quartered argent and gules (white and red), similar to the arms of the Breton city of Combourg. The new flag combines elements of both blazons: it is quartered white and red, with three black ermines placed 2 + 1 in each white quarter, recalling the arms and flag of the city of Dol.
The flag was created by Yoran Delacour (1996).and was approved by the Breton Vexillological Society.

In Ar Banniel [arb] #2 (Spring 1997), Philippe Rault reports the use in some cultural events of a simplified variant of the flag, without the ermine spots in the white quarters.
