[Flag of Coldrerio]
by Pascal Gross

The flag of Coldrerio reminds of the castle said to exist since 1275, the hazel-tree branch alludes to the abundance of this fruit in the area and which have possibly given its name to the village by derivation of the name "Croy" which means hazel-nuss (or "nocciolo" in Italian). Nothing about the presence of the cauldron (in Italian "pentola") in the armorial but I assume that it could be canting as the italian "calderotto" for cauldron is close to the name of this village.
