Gules a Poppy Seedpod Or slipped and leaved.
Željko Heimer, 30 January 2001

The item on the flag of Mägenwil is a capsule which contains the fruits of the poppy. It looks like this flag is canting as the German blazon says: "In Rot gelbe Fruchtkapsel des Mohns (Mägi) an gelbem Stiel mit zwei gelben Blättchen." Mohn means poppy, so "Mägi" seems to be a local name for poppy.
