On 1 January 2010 the new commune of Bregaglia was formed through the merger of Bondo, Castasegna, Soglio, Stampa and Vicosoprano (see below). The new commune is identical with the former Bregaglia circle, and adopted its emblem.

Vert a Chestnut Tree Or fructed and eradicated.
Željko Heimer, 6 October 2001

The tree on the flag of Castasegna is a chestnut-tree. The connection between the chestnut-tree (castagno in Italian) and the name of the commune is obvious but there's no evidence of canting arms according to the book. The chestnut-tree appeared on a seal of this municipality in the 19th century.

[I can't follow Pascal/the book here. For me the connection between castagno and Castasegna is given, which makes the emblem canting. As usual in Switzerland, flag and arms are identical.]

Soglio (until 31 December 2009)
