This Coat of Arms shows the natural environment that is common
in the municipality's territory, Cogliate is near Groane's woods.
The presence of those woods have driven the anciant
administrators of the municipality to emphesize it by including
in three trees at natural "eradicated" in the Coat of
Arms . It is interesting to note that the Heraldic tree is also
the main shape on the Coat of Arms of the Frigerio's family of
Milan, linked to Cogliate for their famous charity activity. This
family founded one of their seven "Opere Pie"
(charitable old institutions in Italy) in Cogliate . See also at
the Coat of Arms on page 436 of Volume I of "Dizionario
Storico-Blasonico di G.B. di Crollalanza.

The flag (?) that Davide sent was a simply very pale blue
rectangular flag, 2:3, with the Coat of Arms centred on it and
occupying 80% of the height of the flag.
