The swan (in German Schwan) on the flag of Merenschwand
makes it partially canting.
[Ed. note: In earlier times names like -schwand, Schwand(en), Schwände etc. were often misinterpreted as coming from "Schwan" (swan).
Pascal Gross, 7 March 2001
This has often turned out to be wrong, much more likely the meaning comes from the old German term "schwenden" which means clearing trees by fire.]
