Flag of the Regional Council

Created in 1987, the logo of the Region shows two yellow and green hearts entwined. In a Region without much of a strong common identity between its constituent departments, they symbolize the union through which a feeling of regional identity should develop. Yellow and green stand for the Region's ressources: yellow for vineyards, champagne and the cornfields as well as for the Region prestigious past; green conveys the idea that Champagne-Ardenne nature is rich in forests and rivers.

Philippe-Pierre Darras, 18 January 1999
