[Flag of Besazio]
by Pascal Gross

Gules a pair of compasses or in chief and in base a marble stone with a carved B proper.
Željko Heimer, 22 October 2003

The marble stone and the compasses on the flag of Besazio allude to the main activity of the population, stone hewing, in the marble quarries of Besazio.
Pascal Gross, 20 October 2003

The B on the stone might allude to the cyphers carved by the stone-cutters on the stones in order to be paid. Such marks are still visible on the stones used to build the cathedrals in Ile-de-France and elsewhere. It is possible that the cutters of Besazio "signed" their stones with such a B letter.
