Flag of Truyes

The flag of Truyes (Pavoifêtes catalogue, 2003) is white with the municipal logo.
The logo, still in use, features the village's landmarks, Manor Bel-Air and the parish church dedicated to St. Martin.

Manor Bel-Air was built in the 1920s by Henri Oudin, owner of a cardboard factory still operated by his descendants, and acquired by the municipality in 1997.
The manor is surrounded by a park (2 ha), which includes a French formal garden and a great water "mirror", rock gardens and a waterfall designed by Louis Decorges (1872-1940, an underrated local landscape designer), and a landscaped garden planted with tall trees.

The parish church of Truyes, dedicated to St. Martin of Tours, was the seat of a priory depending on the neighboring abbey of Cormery. The church's nave and choir were built in Romanesque style in the 12th century. The choir's lateral chapel, with ogival vaults, was allegedly added in the 16th century. The steeple is composed of a square tower with five floors, all equipped with windows, and topped with an octagonal spire equipped with four dormer windows.
