[Flag of Tuggen] image by Pascal Gross

On red and on a blue base, a yellow boat with a white sail and two yellow saints sailing to the left.

The two men are the Irish missionaries Gallus ( > St. Gallen monastery) and Columban, who, according to Walafrid Strabo, came to Tuggen around 610 AD by boat (In the Middle Ages the Lake of Zurich reached until Tuggen).
