Former flag of the General Council - Image by Ivan Sache, 30 September 2009
The former flag of the General Council of Manche is white with the former logo of the General Council. This flag must be obsolete since the General Council has adopted a new logo.
The former logo of the General Council of Manche shows the yellow silhouette of Mont-Saint-Michel flanked on its right by three ribbons blue, green and green, separated from each other by a thin white fimbriation and forming the stylized silhouette of the department. Below Mont-Saint-Michel are the writings "LA MANCHE" in half blue and green letters, and "CONSEIL GENERAL" in black letters.
