Flag of the former General Council of Yonne, two versions - Images by Ivan Sache, 26 October 2009
The flag of the General Council of Yonne, as observed in Auxerre in 2004, is white with the logo of the General Council.
The logo of the General Council of Yonne is made of a blue and green "Y" whose base is pierced by an horizontal orange stripe. The blue part of the "Y" represents river Yonne, for which the department is named, while the green part of the "Y" represents the forests of the department. "CONSEIL GÉNÉRAL / DE L'YONNE" is written below in black letters.
The flag was also used without the writing (photo, photo).
