The flag was created by Divy Kervella, Breton heraldist and vexillologist.
The griffon represents the town of Saint-Brieuc (capital city) and symbolizes the union of Montfort and Penthièvre, former ducal families of Brittany. The blue triangle at hoist represents the shape of bay of Saint-Brieuc.The ermine spot recalls the traditional province of Brittany.
The flag has been approved by the Breton Vexillological Society.
