The flag is a banner of arms, granted October 15, 2006.
It is blazoned "Or a bar gemel enarched Vert between in chief a milk pail and a bunch of grapes, and in base three apples Gules".
The elements of the shield recall the natural wealth of Frelighsburg. The two parallel curved lines represent mount Pinnacle. This structure dominates the field in the same way that Mount Pinnacle is a distinguishing feature of the municipality’s landscape. The antique milk can symbolizes the past and the dairy industry, particularly strong from 1930 to 1940. The three apples represent the present and the three generations of apple growers. The bunch of grapes symbolizes winemaking and the future. The yellow background also represents agriculture in general.
