Flag of Gard

The flag of Gard (photo) is yellow-saffron with the logo adopted in April 2019.
“Innovative, attractive, showing solidarity, the Department's logo reflects its action for the Gard. This visual - simpler and more modern - is centered on the enhancement of the Gard brand: 3.0 as the number of our Department; 3.0 as 2030, perspective of work and the future; 3.0 in reference to the Internet of tomorrow and to the very high speed WiGard connection plan for all areas of the Gard. There are only two color variations for institutional use on monochrome backgrounds - a saffron background or a black background - with a white typo."

Former flag of Gard - Image by Olivier Touzeau, 14 March 2019

The former flag of Gard was yellow with the department's logo (photo, photo). In 2015, General Councils were renamed to Departmental Councils. The logo was modified with the word "Département" and some light modifications concerning the font and the size of the space between the graphic part and the letters.

The logo is structured around a graphic element: the arches, recalling the Pont du Gard, an ancient Roman aqueduct that crosses river Gardon near the town of Vers-Pont-du-Gard. Built as three tiers of archways to bring water to the town of Nîmes, it is the highest of all elevated Roman aqueducts (48.8 m), and one of the best preserved. It was added to UNESCO's list of World Heritage Sites in 1985 because of its historical importance.
According to the Departmental Council, the colors of the logo represent the sun, the sky, and passion.
