The flag of Chiasso features a carriage-entrance (in Italian portone) alluding to the geographical position of the town on the antique road "regina" coming from Como and giving access to several places starting from Chiasso.
Pascal Gross, 22 October 2003

[There is also another influence to the design. The communal website states: "The design was obtained by reworking the coat of arms of the ancient Como Albrici family, owners of many real estate funds, indicated in documents dating back to 1375."]
