by Palac Cyberflag
by Pierre Gay
This flag was proposed by the Western Vexillological Society
(Société Vexillologique de l'Ouest) in1993 and
released in 1994.
The white stripe stands for Upper-Poitou and the black stripe for Lower-Poitou. The red lion was used in the Middle Ages as an emblem by the Poitevins.
