The logotyped flag was created in 1987. It shows two hearts entwined, one yellow, one green. In a Region without much of a strong common indentity 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 the Region prestigious past ; green conveys the idea that Champagne-Ardenne nature is rich in forests and rivers.
Philippe-Pierre Darras, 18 January 1999
