[Flag of Chiggiogna]

The flag of Chiggiogna represents past and present of this commune. The tower ("dei Pedrini") adjoining to the parish church, confirms the importance of this village in the mediaeval days of the Longobardi. The three stars alludes to Chiggiogna and its two fractions of Lavorgo and Fusnengo while the flash of lightning symbolizes electricity, industry which gave the impulsion to the commune by creating jobs.
