Flag of Carquefou

The flag of Carquefou (photo, photo, photo), used at least since 2012, is green with a white right-angled triangle at the hoist and the municipal logo on the green part. The former flag (photo, photo) was white with a green right-angled triangle, the logo in smaller size and in green on the white part, and the motto "Cœur vert et matière grise" ("Green heart and grey matter") in lower hoist.
