[Flag of Caneggio]
by Pascal Gross

Azure a brach's head couped argent.
Željko Heimer, 22 October 2003

The dog on the flag of Caneggio is a brach (in Italian "bracco"). The legend says that an impetuous partisan called "Conte Cane" took refuge in a cavern located in the mountains hanging over Caneggio, the name and arms of the village being derived from that legend.
