THe municipality of Sucé-sur-Erdre (6,186 inhabitants in 2009; 4,133 ha) is located 15 km north of Nantes. The town is watered by river Erdre, there part of the Canal from Nantes to Brest, Sucé being nicknamed "the Pearl of the Erdre".

The flag of Sucé-sur-Erdre is most probably derived from the municipal coat of arms. It is fairly evident that the bridge over the river symbolizes the location of the town. The two ermine spots might mean that both banks of the river are historically Breton.
