The commune of Marly has changed its flag in 1991 to reflect fusions of Marly-le-Grand and Marly-le-Petit in 1969 and then Chesalles in 1976.
The blue wavy stripe symbolizes the river Gerine and the 3 leaves (which alludes to the 3 former entities) come from an alder-tree, very common in this area.
