Flag of Rezé - Image by Arnaud Leroy, 19 January 2002
The municipality of Rezé (38,214 inhabitants in 2009, therefore the 4th most populous municipality in the department; 1,378 ha) is located in the southern outskirts of Nantes.
In 1959, the French architect of Swiss origin Le Corbusier (1687-1965) built in Rezé a "residence unit".

The presence on the flag of a vessel with sails charged with ermine spots, very similar to the one shown on the flag of Nantes, is probably not a coincidence.
