[Flag of Mergoscia]
by Pascal Gross

The head on the flag of Mergoscia is from a he-goat (in Italian "capro"), it alludes to the nickname of the inhabitants: "Capron". The flag also underlines the geographical position of this commune, Mergoscia being the geographical center of Ticino canton, hence the position of the shield in the center of a gironny made of the cantonal colors.

Pascal Gross, 17 June 2003
