Vichy Communauté (82,759 inhabitants in 2018; 74,130 ha; 39 municipalities) was created in 2017 as the merger of the Communauté d'agglomération de Vichy Val d'Allier and the Communauté de communes de la Montagne bourbonnaise.
The flag of Vichy Communauté (photo) is white with the authority's logo, which was designed short after the establishment of the authority.

Blue and green are the colors of the territory, rich in water, forests and green areas.
The logo is composed of a "V", standing for "Vichy", and slanted lines meaning communication, amplification and connection.
The color gradient conveys an effect of vibration and movement.
The authority's name is written in capital letters, in a contemporary typography.
