Gules, a semi of Saint Cyriaque proper clad Argent, haloed Or, holding in dexter a Palm Branch Vert, in sinister an imaginary reptile of the same.
Željko Heimer, 23 October 1999

Some explanations: In 1154 the bishop Saint Amedee gave to the Saint-Maire priory the church of Saint-Cierges, which was one of the oldest of the region. It was dedicated to Saint Cyriaque, who gave his name to the village. The armorial bearings adopted in 1910 recall this former patron saint and his legend (the fabulous animal represents the daemon overcome by the saint).
Pascal Gross, 20 October 1999

Translated from the French blazon:
"Gules a bust of Saint Cyriaque habited Argent his head proper nimbed Or, holding in his dexter hand a branch Vert and with his sinister hand caressing a fabulous reptile of the same."
Santiago Dotor, 24 October 1999

Thierrens (until 31 December 2012)

[Flag of Thierrens] image by Pascal Gross

On an escutcheon Gules a Dog Or gorged Argent, bordered Nebuly Azure and Argent.
Željko Heimer, 29 October 1999

Shouldn't the blue area be a border? I mean, shield shaped in a coat of arms, but square in a banner of arms?
António Martins, 29 October 1999

As I was not sure on the way to convert the coat of arms into a banner of arms for Thierrens, I had a phone conversation with the syndic (in Switzerland equivalent to the mayor) and the municipal treasurer. This last person went upstairs to have a look at a show-window in the council-chamber where a copy of this flag is kept. I made the image according to his description, therefore, I think that the flag I sent to the list is correct.
Pascal Gross, 30 October 1999

I suppose the question in Thierrens is whether the shield is charged with a border or a scocheon (escutcheon, inescutcheon). In the first case the flag has a border, in the second it bears a shield. This can be a puzzler for the herald, unless the border is itself charged. On a banner, though, the difference is clear.
