The symbols which appear on the flag of Rivera alludes to the waves of Radio Svizzera Italiana emitted from Monte Ceneri (the mount of 3 coupeaux). The black arcades alludes to the tunnels connecting both parts of Ticino: Sopra- and Sottoceneri (over and under the Mount Ceneri). Adopted on 03.12.1952, these arms are a recent adoption, compared to many in this canton.
