[Flag of Troistorrent]
by Pascal Gross

In azure with three Fir trees Vert stemmed proper, planted on three mountains of the same between which flow two mountain streams in pale Argent which fall into a third stream in fess; the mountain in the middle charged with a woman sitting, clothed Gules and holding on her knees her child dressed Argent and throwing grain Or.

The three torrents are canting on the flag. They reflect the geographical location of the municipality. The two "vertical" torrents come down from the French-Swiss border (the mountains shown on the flag), the "horizontal" one is the main river, which further flows in the valley (Val d'Illiez) towards the Rhone.
