Description of the flag

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.

[Variant of the flag]by Ivan Sache

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.
