The flag used in the village of Craywick (photo) is white with the municipal coat of arms, "Gules, an escarbuncle pommy and flory or the branch in pale ending in a crozier or a bordure compony argent and sable". The flag used on the seafront of Malo-les-Bains (photo) has the name of the municipality added beneath the shield.
The arms were assigned by Th. Leuridan (Armorial des communes du département du Nord, 1909) as the arms of the St. Bertinus abbey in Saint-Omer, which perceived the tithe in Craywick until the French Revolution. It seems that Leuridan added the bordure for the sake of differentiation, since the arms of the abbey are given without the bordure in the Armorial Général (image).
