On 1 January 2013 the new commune of Val Terbi was formed through the merger of Montsevelier, Vermes and Vicques. On 1 January 2018 Corban joined them (see below).
The new commune uses a logo instead of a flag and CoA (website).

Corban (until 31 December 2017)

This flag was officially adopted in 1910. In references dating back to 1871, only one caterillar is present. From 1815 to 1978, Corban was part of Canton Berne and the caterpillars were removed from the flag in revision during the 1940s: It was believed that they were an invention of Arthur Daucourt (1849–1926) based on the nickname "Caterpillars" that is used to describe the residents of Corban. On 23 December 2003 it was decided to readopt the old flag.

Argent, a Pair of Wings Gules.

A Pair of Wings is rather called a Vol in blazon.
António Martins, 6 September 2000

The blazon in French is "D'argent au vol de gueules" which would give: Argent, a Vol Gules as suggested.
