Flag of Saint-Sébastien-sur-Loire

The flag of Saint-Sébastien-sur-Loire, as communicated by the municipal administration, is white with the municipal coat of arms in the middle.
On the coat of arms, the wavy diagonal most probably symbolizes river Loire, whereas the ermines spots recall that the town was part of the Duchy of Brittany.
